Minister for Solar Homes, Lily D’Ambrosio, has announced the new Chief Executive Officer of Solar Victoria.
Stan Krpan has been appointed and will oversee the implementation of the Andrews Labor Government’s landmark Solar Homes package. Until his recent appointment, Mr Krpan was the CEO of Sustainability Victoria, a role he held since 2012.
Solar Homes is expected to cut Victoria’s carbon emissions by almost four million tonnes – the equivalent of taking one million of Victoria’s 4.6 million cars off the road. Household solar is expected to generate 12.5 per cent of Victoria’s 40 per cent target for renewable energy by 2025.
This will also mark the start of the no-interest loans offer, which will allow households to install solar with no upfront costs, as well as solar panels for 50,000 rental properties and 10,000 solar batteries.
Minister for Solar Homes, Lily D’Ambrosio, said “Mr Krpan has a strong record in this sector and the right experience to lead the delivery of our landmark Solar Homes package.
“Solar Victoria will help Victorians cut their energy costs while developing Victoria’s renewable energy industry and local jobs.
“We’re putting power back into the hands of Victorians – putting a power station on their roof to drive down energy costs, boost supply and fight climate change.”
