A Guide to Solar Power Retrofits in Strata Complexes

Interested in getting solar at your strata property but intimidated by the process? 

In 2020 Eastbrook Village in East Perth installed a 100kW solar system, led by their Council of Owners. The results have been incredibly worthwhile, but retrofitting was a complicated project. Join us to hear from the team at Eastbrook as they share their lessons to smooth your path to installing solar at your complex.

Perfect for anyone who owns property in a strata complex but particularly those involved with the Council of Owners, and who are interested in accessing the benefits of clean green power.

Presentations will touch on the process, technicalities, legal and tax considerations of the Eastbrook project, plus time for questions, wine and networking.

This event is run by Perth City Farm, sponsored by Strata Community Association WA and delivered in partnership with the East Perth Community Group.
