Plico Community Energy Project

14 October 2019

Mike Kilcullen , Chief Operating Officer at Starling Energy, presented the project that won the Energy Innovation of the Year” award in the Australian Institute of Energy, 2019 WA Energy Awards. 

The project was originally launched as the Dunsborough Community Energy Project last year during the pilot phase, but will now be implemented across the whole of WA as the Plico Energy project.

In a highly interactive session, with a very engaged audience, Mike gave an overview of the model, the benefits of signing up, and who would benefit most. In summary the project will:

- Provide an affordable battery and PV system with no upfront capital costs, fully serviced and maintained 

- Help members of the community save money on energy bills from the outset

- Allow the community to own part of an ever-growing battery driven virtual power plant that aims at supporting our future grid

- Contribute to community-based projects, and

- Reduce household carbon emissions by up to 90%.
