Beyond Rooftop solar

Evidence from similar communities suggests rooftop solar PV will only be able to meet 50% or less of our communities’ needs. Beyond this SOS is exploring other mid-scale options. These include solar, wind, wave, community battery, pumped hydro storage and microgrids. A short explanation of each option can be found on our Learn More page.

The Southern Otways Renewable Energy Roadmap

In 2019 SOS won a $10,000 grant for the Colac Otway Shire to develop a renewable energy roadmap for the Southern Otways. The views of the community towards options for renewable energy have been sought at 2 virtual workshops and a survey to the broader community.

Due in September 2020, the final document explores the opportunities and challenges from both the technical and social perspectives.
