Strathbogie Shire smashes initial solar target.
At the Bogie Bulk Buy launch, Cherry Energy Solutions and YEF committed to donating rooftop solar to a local community organisation if over 50kW were sold through the program. Just 3 weeks later this target has been reached, with a further 11 months remaining.
This equates to approximately 72 tonnes of carbon abated annually, and we're just getting started.
The fast pace that local residents are signing on the dotted line demonstrates the quality and affordability of the deal on offer. It is also a testament to strong demand for affordable solar energy in the region, with our calendar jam-packed with residents requesting a site visit over the coming weeks.
So who will receive the donation?
A shortlist is currently being created that participants in the Bogie Bulk Buy will be able to vote upon. If you have a suggestions for a community group within the Shire of Strathbogie that could benefit from some lowered energy bills, please let us know by calling 1300 866 634 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
It doesn't stop here:
This is just the beginning, With this initial goal reached, a community solar donation has been secured. But from here on in, the more solar that is sold through the program the larger the donation can be. If we continue at this rate, we could potentially see solar on several community groups across the Shire – all the more reason to register your interest or attend an information session!
