Quick Win Project 33 – Abbeyfield Kooringal, NSW

The Abbeyfield Kooringal project will provide a 5.28kW solar photovoltaic installation for each of a group of six new 2-bedroom free-standing units, which have been designed to provide a safe, secure and affordable housing option for those living with an intellectual disability.

The units have been designed to give residents a good opportunity for independent living. The generation from the solar panels will ease the cost of living pressures for the residents while reducing their environmental impact.
