Yackandandah Case Study

A groundbreaking collaboration between industry and community

In 2016 we began a partnership with volunteer community group, Totally Renewable Yackandandah (TRY), to explore energy solutions in order to help the community achieve its goal of powering the town with 100% renewable energy by 2022.

This unique partnership led to the Yackandandah Community Mini Grid project, which includes fourteen houses benefiting from integrated solar, batteries and energy management systems. Through Mondo®, the successes from Yackandandah can now be repeated for businesses and communities in Australia and beyond.

Our Community Partner

TRY is a 100% volunteer run community group, formed in 2014, with the lofty goal of powering this small Victorian town with 100% renewable energy and achieving energy sovereignty by 2022. In partnership with Indigo Shire Council, TRY has secured a New Energy Jobs Fund grant of $100,000 to support the community’s energy objectives, including the appointment of a dedicated project manager to develop the volunteer model and the creation of a community energy retailer.

Key project figures

  • 14 houses with 110kWh of batteries forming one of Australia’s first mini grids.
  • 550 kW of solar power covering 106 houses.
  • 169 Victorian-made Ubi™ systems deployed.
