Energy Efficiency

Our recent virtual workshops with the community (during the pandemic) alerted us to the opportunity for very significant reductions in the power required by the community.


Best illustrated by the stunning example of the Apollo Bay Fisherman’s Co-op, this business has identified $33,456 in potential savings each year, through energy efficiency measures. An Energy Efficiency Audit identified just 6 key changes to recoup this annual spending. See the full story here.

Analysis of energy usage data suggests very significant domestic savings are to be gained through similar energy audits. SOS is exploring ways to facilitate these audits for residents and businesses in the Southern Otways.


Please get in touch if you'd like to lend your support in any way - volunteering, investing in energy efficiency or renewable energy projects for your home or business, suggestions or have any questions.

SOS operates on the traditional lands of the Gadubanud and Gulidjan people of the Eastern Maar Nation.  We understand their land was never ceded and that reconciliation cannot happen without acknowledging the truth around those events. We pay our respects to all First Nation Elders past, present and those emerging.
