Battery Project

Flinders Community Battery

Community batteries, sometimes referred to as “neighbourhood batteries”, are a type of energy storage that can increase the accessibility and availability of renewable energy for a surrounding neighbourhood. 


We've been working towards a community battery for years, delivering community forums and facilitating a feasibility study carried out by Yarra Energy Foundation in 2022.


In May 2023 Mornington Peninsula Shire was awarded $500,000 through the Federal Government’s Community Batteries for Household Solar program to deliver the Flinders Community Battery project. 


The aims of the battery project are to help stabilise the grid, give greater capacity for residents to have solar on their roofs, reduce our carbon footprint, and to potentially generate some income for a community fund.
