Are you interested in solar power for your home?

Call the helpline on 1300 23 68 55 or email to discuss whether or not solar might be right for you.

The Australian Energy Foundation has conducted a rigorous assessment and procurement process and can recommend a supplier and installer for your needs.

Installing a solar PV system does not generally require a development application.

However you will need a planning permit if you live in a heritage overlay area, particularly if the solar panels are visible from the street. Please contact Woollahra Council’s Duty Planner on 9391 7000, or to obtain further information, please see heritage information.
