Renewable Energy Project: Solar Panels
A children’s charity for over 100 years, Barnardos advocate for the safety of children at risk of abuse and neglect, providing family support programs and services that empower children to reach their full potential. Barnardos Australia have centres across New South Wales, located in suburbs including Penrith, Auburn, Sydney Metro, and in the Australian Capital Territory. Barnardos are addressing renewable energy and energy efficiency across multiple sites they manage.
The South Coast Children’s Family Centre offers a range of services including family support, early learning, foster care, community building and bushfire recovery support for vulnerable families in the Shoalhaven region of NSW. This loan allowed them to install solar panels and reduce their energy costs which have increased significantly this year.
