How to get to 100%
Website update, Jan 2020: TRY’s website is undergoing an update and some webpages may move around. All the content will still be here though, so check the menus and follow the links to find everything!
How can all the electricity a town uses be generated locally? TRY partners with the local community and relevant organisations to inspire and facilitate projects that transition to clean, local sources of energy. This involves reducing consumption and strategically enabling renewable energy generation, storage and sharing.
We have a 5-stage road-map that guides us through the steps required, including solar and storage installations at residential and community properties, a mini grid to connect it all and a community energy retailer to facilitate the trading and sharing of energy.
A small group of residents were recently connected to the third microgrid in our town. And with the launch of the community energy retailer, Indigo Power, buying and selling local clean energy is now a tantalising reality!
