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.’

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
