Solar Communities Program powering in Herbert


Organisations across Townsville will benefit from the Solar Communities Program funding initiative, with six local groups making successful applications.

 

Northern based Government Senator Ian Macdonald said the Solar Communities Program has been highly sought after in Herbert.

 

“The $5 million program allows community organisations in eligible regions to undertake small scale renewable energy generation and energy storage projects,” Senator Macdonald said.

 

“It is a wonderful initiative aimed at providing a helping hand to community groups to assist them with cheaper overheads so they can focus on the important work they do in our region.”
