Milparinka Solar installation
Milparinka supports people who have a disability to pursue lifestyles that include the same opportunities that all members of the community expect and enjoy. This funding will help Milparinka install a 22.88kW system on their Brunswick centre, saving Milparinka about $4,400 per year in power costs and reducing their CO2 emissions by almost 40,0000 kg. These ongoing savings will enable Milparinka to spend more on what really matters – their community. Projects that will be supported as a result of the savings include a sustainable food waste project and development of their communal garden that provides opportunities for people at Milparinka to have valued roles in their community and to contribute to other people’s lives.
Special thanks to the Moreland Energy Foundation Limited for connecting us with this great project.

CERES Solar installation
CERES' leadership in environmental innovation and commitment to sharing ideas about sustainability initiatives with their education and community programs is well known and admired. CERES is on a mission to achieve zero emissions and one of the key projects to help them achieve this is installing solar panels on available roof spaces at CERES in East Brunswick. The money received from Powershop customers enabled CERES to install 15kW of solar panels on the roof of their Visitor Centre helping them reduce their emissions by almost 16,000 kg of CO2 and saving them about $2,000 per year.
