Repower Mornington Peninsula is a local volunteer-led community decarbonisation network, focused on reducing energy-related carbon emissions through mass electrification and use of locally generated renewable energy.

Their model empowers postcode communities to take ownership of, and action towards, their local energy-related carbon emissions, aiming to reduce them 70% by 2030 against a 2018 baseline. Repower provides prioritised actions that local residents and businesses can take and partners with the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and community recommended local suppliers/installers to promote related services that aid electrification and decarbonisation.

Today, Repower announces its formal partnership with Dunton Group Solar and South Beach Solar -both highly recommended local Peninsula family businesses – to provide solar systems, solar batteries, heat pumps and electric vehicle chargers to support Mornington Peninsula households and businesses in their journey to reduce energy emissions and costs.

Jim Goddard, co-founder and president of Repower said “We’re excited to be able to partner with these two highly recommended local solar providers that have already helped many households and businesses take back control of their energy supply, reducing their bills and emissions.”

Both installers are clean energy council accredited solar retailers and installers and are well known for providing the highest quality products and services on the market.
Equally they have both signed up to Repower’s ‘local community pledge’, meaning that for every kW of solar installed from a Repower referral they will donate $50 towards Repower’s Community Solar Trust Fund. These funds will then be aggregated to purchase and install solar systems for local community not-for-profit organisations on the Peninsula.

Sam Dunton, co-owner of Dunton Group, who recently won a MP Business Excellence award, said “We’re closely aligned with Repower’s mission in helping local households, businesses and organisations to generate their own solar energy. It’s great to be partnering with such a passionate community group who are so invested in both the sustainability and success of our local community.”

Jordan Walsh, owner of South Beach Solar noted “Partnering with Repower is a privilege for us to be able to offer solar installation services locally. It’s an exciting time for all of us in the industry as we play our part to enable and support the transition to a more sustainable energy future.”

A founding principle of Repower is to support and promote highly recommended local businesses. “It not only builds local social capital and ensures accountable ongoing service, it also means we’re investing into the future prosperity of our local community”, said Jim Goddard.
