The concept came about when members from both organisations discussed uptake of solar in business areas. It started as a ‘what-if’ conversation…
What if businesses covered their roofs in panels? Could they store excess electricity in batteries or even in electric cars or delivery vans? How about if solar uptake spread across a whole industrial estate? Could it power the whole thing?
Six months down the track we’ve asked many more questions, done a great deal of research and come up with a vision for Brookvale which, if it works, could provide a model for business solar more widely.
Big if. But worth a try.
Zero Emissions Sydney North welcomes the concept as another way to take swift, practical action on climate.
