A community bulk buy for solar and batteries is being organised for the northern rivers, with the first free event planned for Mullumbimby on Tuesday April 4.
It’s a partnership between COREM and Enova Community, who have joined with social-enterprise organisation Suncrowd.
The aim, say organisers is ‘to take solar and batteries to as many households in the region as possible by making the process easy and accessible, at lower prices.’
Suncrowd claims a ten to 25 per cent reduction on NSW average prices will be on offer.
Additionally, some of the funds from the bulk buy will go towards local renewable projects.
COREM’s Rob Passey says it fits their drive for 100 per cent renewables.
‘We’re excited about this opportunity to bring the community together and help people install hundreds more solar PV systems.’
Alison Crook from Enova Community added, ‘This is a great chance for people to move to solar to help protect themselves from rising energy prices.’
