2013 Commercial Program

2013 Commercial program – C-PREP 2

Council is about to begin its Commercial Purchase of Renewable Energy Program (C-PREP 2). The scheme is designed to enable Fleurieu commercial, business and farming interests, access to affordable solar generation technology, primarily solar panels.

The program’s aim is to reduce energy costs for Fleurieu businesses and primary producers.

C-PREP2 will operate along similar lines to Councils C-PREP 1 program which was aimed primarily at domestic ratepayers. Intending business and agricultural operators will have access to several different installation “packs” of solar panels. They will be able to register for C-PREP 2 at the City of Victor Harbor’s front counter at 1 Bay Road, Victor Harbor.

Any doubt as to the need and benefits of solar energy programs (distributed energy)
is dispelled in the June 2013 New Scientist article by Caroline Williams which can be seen
