Local not-for-profit COREM has a vision to make the area a national leader in climate action and at their recent Renew Fest festival they launched their next crowdfunding campaign to fund their 2017 goals.
The campaign aims to raise $100,000 to build more community solar PV projects, develop a solar business program, fund a renewable streets education initiative and continue work to reinstate the Lavertys Gap hydro station in Wilsons Creek.
COREM treasurer Rob Passey says, ‘We are encouraged by the early donations to our crowdfunding campaign.
Early $5k donation
‘Just a day after announcing its official launch at Renew Fest we received a huge $5,000 donation from the M Tidswell ATF New Horizons Trust.’
‘We’ve also already received a number of smaller donations.
‘Thank you for this early support with this campaign. It’s great that our community are feeling inspired to give to the goal of transitioning our area to 100 per cent renewables in whatever way they can.’
The fundraiser ends July 19.
