Supporting sustainable energy

Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams is encouraging local residents to get behind a ground-breaking community-owned renewable energy project, Energy Forever.  

“Energy Forever is seeking sponsors within our community who care about sustainability and clean energy to consider sponsoring a solar panel for the first host site at St Agnes Early Childhood Education Centre,” Mrs Williams said.

 

“The project was established with a grant from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage’s Growing Community Energy Program.

 

“Anyone can sponsor a whole panel for just $333 or donate a smaller amount and co-sponsor a panel with others.

 

"Host sites pay Energy Forever for the electricity they consume, and proceeds are returned to the community in the form of an on-going fund for a sustainability grants program. 

 

“Of the 80 solar panels needed to power the first host site, 50 have already been sponsored.

 

“As someone with a keen interest in sustainable energy, I am supporting this project and have sponsored a panel myself.

 

“I encourage people to consider being part of this exciting new project and sponsor a panel in Energy Forever’s first installation.
