Farming the Sun welcomes the announcement of funding from The Earth Welfare Foundation of $9,900 for the establishment works required to research and assess potential sites for seven community solar farms. Farming the Sun has already confirmed matching funding to develop seven community solar farms – from Starfish Enterprises and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. The proposed funding will provide for the establishment work needed for each of these solar farm sites to be successfully developed and negotiated up to the point where this matching funding becomes available to complete the projects.
“Businesses and community members taking leadership and responsibility is key to the shift to sustainability,” said Josette Wunder, Trustee of The Earth Welfare Foundation. “Community renewable energy projects like this are exemplars for how we can learn, work and invest together to achieve a more sustainable community and environment.”
