Pro Bono Work
Giving back to our local community is important to the team. And we consider Pro Bono work to be a vital part of our working life. Some of our Pro Bono projects include:
Royal Park Tennis Club (VIC): 6.48kWp Solar PV and 9.3kWh Li-ion battery storage system - Completed in 2018
Goal: Expert designs for a solar + battery system for the club house building.
- A system that meets the club's daytime loads most of the time and saves excess energy in the DC-coupled battery system.
- Cuts the club's power bills in half, with a single-digit year payback period.
Cubbies, Fitzroy (VIC): Solar Playground - Completed in 2017
Goal: Designed and coordinated the integration of solar panels into the amazing project for an innovative playground for disadvantaged children in Fitzroy.
Results: The playground has a new playscape installation called Coal Flowers, which houses 25 solar panels, generating and harnessing renewable electricity for the on-site hut building.
We participate in different fundraising events throughout the year. Some of the key ones being:
Sleep at the G
Organised by Melbourne City Mission, Sleep at the G is a fundraising event that highlights the struggle and plight of youth homelessness in Victoria. Every year our team raised thousands of dollars money for the cause.
Save the Children’s Cubbies Program
We organise annual fundraising for local organisation. The aim is to help keep Cubbies open for local children and provide a safe space for children to play, learn and share – many of whom have come from families who have experienced extreme hardships as refugees.
From minimal packaging and plastic, to local suppliers for coffee and toiletries, to only using reusable or compostable cutlery. We walk the walk when it comes to sustainability
While we're not in a location where we can have a PV system of our own; we make sure to buy power from renewable energy suppliers like Diamond Energy.
