AEF have been working with Moreland City Council to make it easier for those living in heritage overlay precincts to install solar.
New guidance, including a sample application, is now available on Council’s website – www.moreland.vic.gov.au/planning-building/environmentally-sustainable-design/installing-solar-panels-on-heritage-homes/
- If you live in a heritage precinct and the panels will be visible from the street then you need to apply for a planning permit
- Permit applications are usually processed within 10 working days, and cost under $200
Moreland residents can get an obligation free solar quote from the Australian Energy Foundation. Their suppliers can let you know how much solar you can generate by placing panels on your street facing (and non-street facing) roofs.
Contact the Australian Energy Foundation on 1300 23 68 55 or visit the website to find out more.
