Green Offset funds over the past two years have helped fund Australia’s first social benefit solar garden – a 100 solar panel solar garden on the roof of North Coast Community Housing, allowing social housing tenants and local community organisations to benefit from reduced electricity bills. St John’s Primary School in Mullumbimby (88 panels) and Coorabell Hall (35 panels) were also part of the Green Offset contributions. Enova Energy and COREM will continue to invest Green Offset funds into more local renewable energy projects – making this one very green region! In 2020 they are working with the Arakwal people, the traditional owners of Byron Bay on an exciting new solar project.
Through the Splendour Green Offset program, your contribution directly increases the amount of solar in the Northern Rivers! For every 1 kilowatt of solar, that’s one kilowatt of coal-fired power that does not get produced. Renewable energy is one of the most effective ways to reduce emissions. Your dollars are supporting the green energy transition.
