For every 50 households that choose to take up the solar lifestyle as a part of the Geelong Community Solar Program, ShineHub and Geelong Sustainability will co-donate a 3kW solar panel system to a local household in need.

Far too often we see power poverty take a hold on Australian families, couples and individuals. The ultimate remedy to crippling electricity bills is self-sustainability, but sometimes solar solutions lie beyond the reach of those who need them most. So, we’ve decided to hold a big ‘solar giveaway’ in the hope that we can change some lives for the better.

For every 50 households that choose to take up the solar lifestyle as a part of the Geelong Community Solar Program, ShineHub and Geelong Sustainability will co-donate a 3kW solar panel system to a local household in need. 

With sign-ups beginning to stream in, it is projected that over 300 households will make the switch to solar through the program, meaning around 6 systems will be up for grabs!

Expressions of interest are now open and we need your help to find our worthy recipients.

We are looking for residents of Geelong and surrounding suburbs to share their stories and tell us how a solar system would help their household.

To apply, email info@geelongsustainability.org.au with the subject line ‘Solar Giveaway’ and include the following details:

  • Your name, email, phone number and home address 
  • Whether you are renting or own your house
  • Your average quarterly electricity bill (be prepared to show your most recent bill for confirmation)
  • A short summary of how going solar would help you and your household
  • A short summary as to why you haven’t been able to make the switch to solar before now
  • The average income bracket of your household (please be prepared to show documentation to prove this if you are selected)

Applications will close on July 28th and judging process will be as follows:

  1. Geelong Sustainability and their board will review all applications and make a decision by Wednesday 15 August 2018 
  2. Confirmation documents will be required to show that the info on the submission is accurate by Thursday 30 August 2018
  3. Recipients will be announced on Saturday 1 September 2018, with installation scheduled for December 2018

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Geelong Sustainability at info@geelongsustainability.org.au
