Our Community Energy Fund
Make the sun shine
It’s the local community groups that help to make the Northern Rivers so special. We want to support more of these groups by reducing their energy expenses so they can continue to do the great work they do. To increase access to solar power for these groups, we have launched our Community Energy Fund.
for our community
Every Light Touch solar system sold contributes $50 to our Community Energy Fund. As soon as the fund is full enough to fund a 3kW solar system, local community groups and not-for-profit organisations can apply for a new solar system.
This will not be a loan, so no money will need to be paid back by the group. Our community can enjoy the benefits of energising their project with clean, renewable energy and benefiting from feed-in-tariffs to further reduce their electricity bill.
with your solar system
While we bring the clean power to the people, it’s the people that bring the power to our community.
So get on board, and we look forward to announcing when the first solar system is funded so you can invite your favourite community group to apply.
