Sustainable Communities SA has completed a Strategic Plan 2017-2022!
The planning process had helped us to refine our purpose and aims and the completed plan will guide us as we revive our organisation, take new directions and embark on new partnerships.
Thanks to the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters for a Community Grant that enabled us to do this important work, and to consultant Susan Raphael who assisted us.
We invite members and other interested people to read the plan and join us as we put it into action!

The SA Community Solar Program is available to anyone who owns a home in or around Adelaide – and signup closes on 2 December 2017. By getting lots of people in one area to go solar at the same time, we can ensure you get the best possible deal.
The program is running several community information sessions and is offering $0 down deals on solar and battery systems through partnership with several pay as you go companies. Repayments are supposed to start at $17/week for solar and $30/week for solar and battery systems, you’ll be able to save from day one without paying anything up front.
