Creating a Brighter Future, Together


When it comes to rewriting Australia’s energy future, there’s power in numbers. When you join Plico you become part of a community of savvy homeowners who are saying ‘yes’ to clean energy and greater energy independence. And it all began with DCEP in a sunny South West town. 

Community Ownership through DCEP.

Our story starts back in 2018 when a group of innovators, keen to see more action on climate change, introduced their unique clean energy model to the coastal town of Dunsborough. The Dunsborough Community Energy Project (DCEP) demonstrated how solar + battery could be made affordable and accessible for anyone.

The movement quickly expanded to the rest of WA and so, Plico was born.

Today, DCEP Inc is the not-for-profit association that all Plico members are part of. The name pays homage to our humble beginnings.

Our dedicated DCEP Committee represents the Plico community and drives our community impact and member support projects.

Our SUSI Partners

A project of this scale would not be possible without our ethical investment partner, SUSI Partners. SUSI are a Swiss infrastructure fund manager that is working toward a carbon-neutral society through investment. 

With SUSI's backing, Plico is here for the long haul.
