Allume Energy has partnered with Suntrix to make solar power a more accessible option for 1 in 10 Australians who choose to live in apartments.

SolShare is the word’s first behind-the-meter solar sharing technology. An Australian innovation, SolShare enables power generated from a single solar system on a communal roof to share power to multiple, separately metered units within the same building.

SolShare anticipates apartment residents will be able to reduce their electricity bills by around 40%.

How it works

The SolShare unit sends the energy from the inverter to each apartment. It constantly monitors everyone’s energy usage and distributes it in a way that ensures everyone receives their fair share of solar energy and maximises their electricity bill savings.
