Energy poverty is a serious concern in remote communities where cost-of-living pressures are high. Households in remote communities experience power disconnections at a significantly higher rate. Due to regulatory and policy barriers First Nations residents in these communities are inequitably locked-out of the direct financial benefits of either rooftop or centrally installed solar PV. With the ultimate goal of installing solar and providing community batteries for all households in remote communities in the NT, this project involves undertaking a scoping study to develop a step-wise solar rollout program for all social housing stock in the NT.
