Helping Uncommon Folk Drive Sustainable Social & Environmental Change

Solar Installation For The Amazing People At Uncommon Folk  

The team at Dunton Group were incredibly excited to have the opportunity to provide renewable energy for the wonderful people of Uncommon Folk, a social enterprise dedicated to driving social and environmental change for our current and future generations. Part of that process is ‘The Farm’ based in Main Ridge, a 200-acre site where multiple micro businesses can cofunction. A place to promote and encourage regenerative farming practices for a sustainable and innovative future.

Inspiring businesses such as Yolky Dokey and Cherry Road are just a sample of the local businesses benefitting from the work and vision of Uncommon Folk. Something we’re very much aligned with at Dunton Group and we were proud to be the chosen supplier of a 40-panel solar system to provide renewable energy to the site with an estimated CO2 reduction of 26.2 tonnes.

With a generous grant from the Mornington Peninsula Shire, Uncommon Folk have gone above and beyond to ensure the site is able to utilize a renewable energy opportunity. It is pleasing to see environmentally conscious organizations helping to drive a positive change on the Peninsula. Organisations such as Uncommon Folk and Repower Mornington Peninsula are actively exploring ways to provide renewable energy options to as many people in the community as possible. Helping to dramatically reducing the carbon emissions from our beautiful corner of the world.

If you would like to explore the benefits of renewable energy, make sure you get in contact with us for a chat about the options available.

The Dunton Group are strong advocates of the benefits of solar power and green energy, our team are Mornington Peninsula locals who cherish this beautiful corner of the world that we’re lucky enough to call home. By providing homes and businesses with a reliable solar energy solution we’re doing our small bit to help the future of our planet.

Smoke Detector and CO Alarm

We recently completed an awesome solar system for a client on the Mornington Peninsula that asked us to help with some electrical work while we were there. They also had Google Nest Smoke and CO alarms that needed hard wiring throughout the property for a little extra peace of mind. 

Power your home in an outage with a generator transfer switch

Battery storage options such as the Tesla Powerwall have continued to grow in recent years and we are including a battery with almost a quarter of our solar installations now. However, a battery is not always affordable or the right option for everyone. A more affordable option is to install a generator transfer switch.

How to avoid ‘Crap Solar’

As Australia starts to embrace the benefits of renewable energy, the presence of low-quality solar systems and providers is also on the rise. So much so that a Facebook group page called ‘Crap Solar’ has over 40,000 members contributing content highlighting the not so awesome installations found across Australia and New Zealand. 

When to talk to the solar installer on a new build or renovation

If you are planning a new build or a renovation it is absolutely imperative to talk to the solar installer as soon as possible. Include your builder and other trades if needed, but the earlier you can talk to the solar installers the better your install will be.
