Unlock rooftop solar for apartments and
multi-dwelling buildings

Millions of apartment residents have the roof space for solar but, until recently, no way of accessing it.

We didn’t think this was fair, and so we developed a world-first technology, SolShare, which enables the sharing of solar energy from a single rooftop solar system amongst multiple dwellings within the same building.

This breaks down the technical and ownership barriers that have historically prevented apartment residents from accessing cheaper and cleaner energy from the sun.

About the SolShare

Maximised Saving
The SolShare’s sharing algorithm responds to each participant’s instantaneous usage, directing the solar to where it’s needed to maximise consumption and savings.

Tailored for the user
A SolShare system can be delivered in a variety of ways, from pay as you use solar to owning the system outright and receiving solar energy for free.

Stay on market
The SolShare’s behind-the-meter approach means residents can maintain the freedom to choose their electricity retailer.

Each year, a typical SolShare will

35 MWh
produce 35 MWh of electricity

35 – 40 %
typical grid-electricity reduction of 35 – 40 %

28 tonnes
reduce CO2 emissions by 28 tonnes
