A first of its kind energy scheme will see footy fans power the MCG in exchange for exclusive MCG access.
The MCG will partner with Energy Australia for the plan which is slated to start early next year. Energy Australia customers with solar panels who currently have access to a feed-in tariff will have the option to instead send their excess power to the MCG to receive credit for VIP experiences.
These VIP experiences include special seats with a private butler and tours of the ground.
It’s estimated that if 1500 Victorian homes shared their excess solar energy for a year, it would be enough to power a whole season of AFL footy.
