Warrnambool and Positive Charge

Positive Charge welcomed Warrnambool City Council in 2018.

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.

Why is Warrnambool doing this?

Working with Positive Charge aligns with the Green Warrnambool Plan:

  • This is the new Council Environmental Sustainability strategy based on community aspirations. Warrnambool aims to be “the most sustainable regional city in Australia”
  • As part of the Green Warrnambool strategy six different goals were developed, one of them is the Zero Warrnambool “ Warrnambool will have zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2040”, “ Warrnambool will reduce its citywide emissions by 20% by 2026”. There is an expectation from our community to act against climate change as well as the rise on power prices.
