Our Solar Future

The ‘Our Solar Future’ project is part of the delivery of the ‘Renewable Energy Master Plan, Our Energy Future’ – an initiative of Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC) and eight participating member councils: Ashfield, Bankstown, Canterbury, Canada Bay, Kogarah, Leichhardt, Marrickville and Rockdale.

The Our Solar Future website was launched to give households and small businesses access to renewable energy products and services. We have worked with renewable energy experts to select a number of preferred suppliers that can meet your solar energy needs. On offer are solar panels, solar hot water and heat pumps. Go to to get a quote and find out more.

If you live in the Leichhardt Council area, we have developed a list of FAQs below that may answer your questions about our processes for installing a photovoltaic (PV) system. You can also go to our DA process page.

The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage has developed a guide to help you understand the payment options available for solar PV energy. To access solar PV you have a number of options, including familiar forms of finance and some more specialised solar options. The information, tools and resources on this site will help you choose a solar PV payment option that's right for you. Read more at the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage website.
