Have your Local Government Area mapped with SunSPoT
There is significant potential for rooftop solar PV in Australia, but there has thus far been a lack of good quality information to make decisions about solar PV investments.
SunSPoT provides information and analysis to help energy consumers and PV businesses make better decisions about investment in solar PV. Councils, rate-payers, community groups and businesses can assess the best opportunities for solar PV, which will inform better planning, policy development and investment in solar PV on the best sites.
Join the Smart Cities and Suburbs Project: The APVI, UNSW and partners are working with councils to map the solar potential of their local government areas.

If your council area has not yet been mapped, contact your local council and firstname.lastname@example.org with an expression of interest
