Kimberley Communities Solar Saver

A new way to access the benefits of solar power in the Kimberley.

Community solar is a new way of sharing energy, designed to benefit everyone in the community.

We're installing solar panels on around 400 homes in five Kimberley communities.

The benefits of this cleaner, cheaper electricity is shared with everyone in the community. By sharing solar, residents can save on electricity costs and reduce reliance on diesel generators.

The first solar panels go up in Warmun from April 2024, followed by proposed communities Djarindjin & Lombadina, Beagle Bay, Ardyaloon and Bidyadanga over 2024 and 2025.

Not all homes get solar, but everyone saves money.

Not every location or roof is right for solar. It depends on which way the roof is facing, roof shading, how much space there is and some other factors. With community solar, it doesn’t matter which rooftops have solar panels. Everyone in the community can use shared solar power to reduce their bills.

Using solar power during the day = more savings and less diesel

Solar systems turn the sun’s rays into electricity when the sun is shining. This means shared solar won’t replace diesel generators completely. But more power will come from the sun and less from diesel generators.

Using shared solar during the day will help you save more on your electricity bill.
