Solar Funding Available for Community Groups in Macquarie
“Australia has the highest penetration of rooftop solar in the world,” Senator Payne said.
"One in five Australian homes has rooftop solar and an increasing number of small businesses are making the most of the financial and environmental benefits of solar.
“This is a great opportunity for community groups in the Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains, such as sporting clubs, scouts, welfare centres, surf lifesaving clubs and Country Women’s Associations, to get involved,” Senator Payne said.
“They can not only reduce their electricity costs, but also create their own power to supplement the grid.”
“Baptist Emergency Accommodation Ministry (BEAM) at South Windsor and Springwood-Winmalee Girl Guides in the Blue Mountains have already benefitted from the Program, sharing in combined $30,000 funding under Round 1 in 2017,” Senator Payne said.
Applications for Round 2 are now open and close on 31 May 2018. Guidelines are now available.
The Program will be delivered by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, in consultation with the Department of the Environment and Energy.
