Originally founded on the back of a gold rush, the Victorian city of Bendigo has experienced a different type of rush in recent years – towards solar power.
Sparking the green energy rush was the Goldfields Solar Hub project that ran from 2010 – 2012; a bulk buy program that saw solar panels installed on hundreds of rooftops across the city of Bendigo.
Today, the solar energy revolution continues, with thousands of households and businesses throughout Bendigo harvesting the electricity bill-busting and emissions reduction benefits associated with rooftop PV systems; which have dropped in price significantly since the days of the bulk buy program.
Local Council has also jumped on the clean energy bandwagon, having installed hundreds of kilowatts of solar panels on Council-owned buildings and facilities - and it's not going to end there. Developers are also eyeing Bendigo as a location for large-scale solar farms.
The wild days of the gold rush may be over, but Bendigo’s residents are still making money by saving it on their electricity bills through another source of gold – our sun, and the solar panels that help transform its energy.
Residents are fortunate to have such a wide choice of good solar installers in Bendigo and in the surrounding region. These include the companies listed above; all of which have been pre-vetted by SolarQuotes.
