The first of two Lismore Community Solarfarm projects switched on in July 2017. The 99kW solarfarm was installed and is now generating energy on the roof of the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre.
After several years of hard work between Farming the Sun, Lismore City Council and a community committed to renewable energy, it is incredibly exciting to see this solarfarm now powering one of Lismore’s biggest facilities.
Local solar installer Rainbow Power Company was the successful tenderer (via the Council) and installer for the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre solarfarm. Well done Rainbow Power Company!
This facility is used by a wide cross-section of the community and provides ongoing opportunities for engagement and education about the project ~ particularly the benefits of community partnerships and renewable energy.
