Where mid-scale batteries meet the community

About DC Power Co

DC Power Co is made for solar households. A Melbourne-based solar power startup with over 12,500 investors, we launched in 2018 through the world’s largest crowdfunding equity raise for a business.

We’re working with governments and community groups to identify opportunities for local renewable energy storage (LRES), more commonly known as community batteries.

Why community batteries?

✔️ Facilitate increased renewable energy penetration

✔️ Enable storage and dispatch of that energy, whether or not it’s sunny or windy

✔️ Strengthen local electricity systems in the event of blackouts or fire risk

✔️ Engage local communities in the transition to net zero emissions
