Website update, 2020: We’re working on a new website for TRY and we’re hoping it will be live in early 2021. New pages are still being added to this site though and all the old content is here. Please excuse us as we work towards a better site!
How to get to 100%
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!
Our Virtual Power Plant wins two awards!
TRY was thrilled to win two awards in December 2020 for our community virtual power plant, generating renewable energy on community buildings. Watch the video and check out the winning project here.
