Boroondara and Positive Charge

Positive Charge welcomed Boroondara City Council in 2014.

We are now working together to support households and businesses install solar, through a tried and tested supplier. Positive Charge has selected a solar supplier through an open to tender process. Products, services, warranties, service record and longevity of the company were all reviewed before one supplier was selected, to make it easy for you to find someone you can trust. These systems not only mean that you pay less on your electricity bill by supplying renewable energy to your home, but also come with a 25 year warranty on output of the panels and a ten year warranty on the inverter as well as the installation.

About Boroondara

The City of Boroondara is a metropolitan council, representing more than 165000 people in the inner-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

This area was originally part of the hunting grounds of a Wurundjeri clan of the Woiwurrung people.

Surveying the area in 1837, Robert Hoddle declared it the ‘Parish of Boroondara’. As the area was densely wooded, he took the word from the Woiwurrung language, translating it as ‘ where the ground is thickly shaded’.

The first local government body was the Boroondara District Road Board, formed in 1854 and incorporated the areas which were later to become Hawthorn, Kew and Camberwell.

With the amalgamation of the Cities of Camberwell, Kew and Hawthorn in June 1994 the City of Boroondara was created.

Boroondara suburbs are:

  • Ashburton
  • Balwyn
  • Balwyn North
  • Camberwell
  • Canterbury
  • Deepdene
  • Glen Iris
  • Hawthorn
  • Hawthorn East
  • Kew East
