Yackandandah Virtual Power Plant
Finalist in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2020 – Community category
Totally Renewable Yackandandah's Virtual Power Plant is a network of publicly owned buildings across the locality that generate, store and share electricity to build toward a robust, localised, low-carbon and resilient electricity supply. The goal is for Yackandandah's energy supply to be 100% renewable by 2022.
The Virtual Power Plant project saw the installation of 74kW of solar across Totally Renewable Yackandandah's footprint which has a 14km effective radius generating an extra 104MWh of clean energy, reducing carbon emissions by an estimated 88 tonnes CO2 per year.
