As part of our Gippsland Solar Community Fund, we were thrilled to donate and install a 10kW system (valued at $15,000!) to the amazing people at Gippsland Farmer Relief.
With over 120 volunteers providing support for our farmers during this crippling drought, a little funding goes a long way for Gippsland Farmer Relief. The last thing they wanted to spend their funding on was rising electricity bills, so this donation will allow GFR to redirect tens of thousands of dollars into the areas it is most needed.
The donation of this system was made possible through the generous support by REC solar, who donated their premium n-peak solar panels, and our good friends at Fronius, who donated the 10kW Symo inverter.
All other components and installation were donated through our Community Fund, which has reinvested over $800,000 in support across Gippsland in the last 5 years.
Our Retail Manager Mitch met Melissa Ferguson from GFR during this years’ Gippsland Community Leadership Program, which they are both taking part in. It was a great initiative by Mitch to drive this project, highlighting the very leadership we want to see within the business.
Thanks to everyone who made this donation possible, and to our valued clients, who keep supporting Gippsland Solar and allowing this Community Fund to grow every year.
