Thanks to our sustainability program, Solo Sunny Days, we have contributed so far to the installation of over 110kW of solar power in community-owned projects around Australia. A total of 358 solar panels installed that would generate enough energy to power more than 100 homes for an entire year.
On our day to day, we are always looking at ways to minimise our impact by reducing the amount of energy consumption at the warehouse, office & store and by offsetting 100% of the electricity with renewable energy becoming carbon neutral. By supporting OTTWAY you are investing in renewable energy too.
We envision a world where people are thriving in communities powered by clean energy, find below a summary of the projects that we have enabled thanks to your contribution:
1. Tarremah Steiner School (Huntingfield, TAS) - 100 kW
This project of 100kW solar installation for Tarremah Steiner School in Tasmania is a rather special project to help them become a model sustainability school, which has enthusiastic support from students and their community. They then hope to inspire other schools to follow suit.
Woonona Bulli (Wollongong, NSW) - 6.6 kW
Open to the community as a space to learn and develop cultural & artistic skills and also currently developing a charity to include free mental health and environmental awareness programs.
Coorabell Hall (Byron Bay, NSW) - 5.5 kW
It is volunteer-run for community, arts & cultural pursuits and has been providing a community meeting space for over 100 years.
