PLAYING OUR PART IN BUSHFIRE RECOVERY

13 January 2020

The wheels are in motion up in East Gippsland, with the planning and recovery work in full swing.

Thanks to our friends at RACV, we have secured the services of this flat bed truck (including a driver) to assist with the reconstruction across Gippsland. Today’s delivery is full of donated solar panels and electrical infrastructure for East Gippsland, and reflects RACV’s commitment and support for the region.

A summary of the support that we are providing to the region:

– A $25,000 donation already made to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund

– 4 x emergency power packs, made up of 2 x Tesla Powerwall batteries wired into a switchboard and powerpoints, to be deployed into the hardest hit areas within the next week or so

– Over 400 solar panels donated by our friends at Trina Solar and SunPower, as well as the excess solar panels from a recently completed solar farm at Numurkah (donated by the good people at Neoen). These solar panels and hardware will provide electricity for some regions without reliable supply

– Solar inverters provided by our friends at Fronius

– Working with Telstra and AusNet (who have both been amazing during this difficult period) to deploy generators to areas in need of emergency power

– The establishment of an internal Bushfire Recovery team, to explore the ways we can support the region. This may be in the form of financial support, products or services

Any suggestions are welcome, to help us work with the East Gippsland community as we rebuild the necessary services and infrastructure.

Thanks to our staff who have volunteered their time, either to physically fight the fires or assist with planning the reconstruction efforts.

We believe the quality of our people is our greatest asset, and this awful situation has certainly reinforced those beliefs.

We live in a wonderful region, with so many amazing people. This rebuild will be challenging, but it will galvanize the community and only strengthen us going forward.

New Bairnsdale Showroom

13 June 2019

We are excited to announce the official opening of our new interactive showroom in Bairnsdale on Saturday June 29!

Our regional manager, Landon Moss, a passionate East Gippsland local who has worked hard to grow the Gippsland Solar footprint in the region. We’d also like to thank the East Gippsland Shire, local councillors, businesses and residents, for rewarding our investment into local jobs and economic development.

As Gippsland Solar’s East Gippsland business has grown, we have invested a percentage of sales into sponsorships and socially responsible projects in the region. We have donated a $25,000 off-grid system for the FLOAT art gallery at Lake Tyers, sponsored the East Gippsland Business Awards two years running, and donated thousands of dollars to community groups and sporting clubs. If you have any idea for future community projects we could support, please let us know!

This new showroom is a significant investment, and will transform an empty building on the highway into a cutting-edge interactive product showroom where East Gippslanders can find honest advice on meeting their energy needs.

Our showroom is perfectly located on the highway (corner Main Street and Payne Street, across the road from the Bairnsdale Hospital). The showroom will feature live solar power and battery storage systems, heat pump hot water, heating and cooling products, energy management technology and much more.

YOUR INVITATION:

We invite you to come and celebrate the opening of our new East Gippsland interactive showroom. We’ll have a free BBQ, free solar-powered milkshakes from Gippsland Jersey, kids prizes, and East Gippsland Mayor Natalie O’Conell will officially open the showroom at 11am.

Where:  35 Payne Street, Bairnsdale

When: Saturday June 29, 2019

Time: 9am-midday.
