The NSW State govt. have release a new funding opportunity that is a perfect match for the Manilla Community Solar Farm.
It is called the “Regional Community Energy Fund” and it provides grants to community energy projects that create innovative and/or dispatchable renewable energy and benefit the local community.
Our group will be making an application for funding. If successful it will greatly assist our project by meeting the grid-connection and development costs required, as well as other legal and financial project costs.
Our project will be community owned. This funding is a giant hand-up to get to the point where are we can ask for community investment and make our solar dreams a reality.
