About Farming the Sun
Farming the Sun is Australia’s most diverse community solar energy initiative. It is a large-scale collaboration coordinated by Starfish Initiatives and in 2011 was awarded a NSW Government Green Globe Award for its contribution to sustainability.
Total installations have now surpassed 2.25MW of solar power, plus solar hot water and solar thermal heating and cooling systems; training has been provided for more than three dozen tradespeople; and we have provided a massive level of community awareness and education in sustainable energy.
Farming the Sun’s success proves the power of partnerships and collaboration. Together with the project partners, significant step-changes have been achieved in the take-up of solar energy technologies, reduced greenhouse emissions and regional economic benefits.
