Reaping the benefits of roof top solar

Posted in: 
Operations

Wheatbelt NRM is really excited to be reaping the savings from our new rooftop solar system that was installed for free through our successful application to the Synergy Community Solar Fund.

This fund helps community groups discover new ways to save energy so they can invest more into their important programs.

Our accountant Pete Miller is excitedly watching the savings grow through the online dashboard.

Since the system was installed in late September we have saved over $1200 in our power costs and reduced our CO2 footprint equivalent to travelling 27,000km by car.

Wheatbelt NRM CEO Natarsha Woods said “It is great to be able to save funds and re invest those savings in our work to conserve our Wheatbelt environment. We have always wanted to be more sustainable in our use of our natural resources but simply couldn’t rationalise the upfront infrastructure cost. Thank you Synergy for your support.”
