Community Renewable Energy Project
A partnership between Rise (a local community organisation)and MiT to install a 6.5 Kw solar photo voltaic system on Rise owned facility – ‘Andrews Place’ in Parkerville – that houses 12 people with disabilities. This will deliver a significant reduction in energy consumed from the grid. We will be mounting a campaign to raise $10,000 from the local community to enable the system to be installed on the building which will then be donated to Rise.
We will arrange and pay for an energy audit to further reduce energy consumption at Andrew’s Place.
Rise will mount a second system on their office building in Middle Swan that equals or exceeds the capacity of the system donated by within 15 months of the original system on ‘Andrew’s Place’ being installed given that the donated system reaches the energy production figures forecast over the first 12 month period.
Other projects under consideration are bulk buying of solar panels, further education on renewable energy in the community and advocacy in the community for renewable energy.
We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in joining our group.
