Hoskins Uniting Church has received a successful community grant of $3000 from Energy Australia Mt Piper for its roof top solar panels project.
The 12 month project, which is at its half way stage, has raised $7739.24 thus far but is still behind the target of $14,571.50
That target will include the overall cost to install the rooftop solar panels.
The money raised so far has been via private donations and fundraising events including Bunnings barbecues.
Julie Favell, project officer of Lithgow Environment Renewable Energy Hub, said that by utilising energy from the sun it would reduce Hoskins Uniting Church Lithgow’s carbon footprint.
She also said that with reduced energy costs it would allow the church to continue supporting the community and those in need.
The Lithgow Environment Group seeks to preserve the balance of nature in its region. This is especially important given the impacts of the area's industrial heritage. The Lithgow region contains some of the most biodiverse bushland in the Greater Blue Mountains. Our aim is to promote and protect this rich natural heritage..
