The people powered solar startup

Harnessing the power of Australia’s 2.5 million solar homes

Be the power. Three simple words that started this company three years ago. Together, with almost 12,500 everyday Australians, we said let’s build a power company to support solar homes.

DC Power Co’s vision is an Australia powered by renewable energy. It was established because the energy industry, and government, don’t recognise two million solar homes as a critical part of the energy mix.

Whether it’s an energy offer backed by one of Australia’s leading renewable energy players, or solar and battery products that give you control of your energy, DC Power Co, the community-driven champion for solar energy, has your back.

Making your solar & battery investment simple

The team that gives you guidance, with no hard sell.

DC Power Co is a Melbourne-based startup that was established with the world’s largest crowdfunding campaign for the launch of a business. We’re backed by over 12,500 regular Australians, who have banded together to drive the renewable energy transition. Whether you’re looking to get solar and a battery, or get more out of your existing system, we put you, the customer, first. Read what customers say about us

Driving uptake of battery storage

Building the Big Aussie Battery, one home at a time.

Australia’s solar homes have three times the energy capacity of the country’s largest coal-fired power plant. It just needs to be unlocked with home battery storage. We have a vision for the future of energy in Australia that puts solar households at the centre. And we want government to take note. Read the white paper
