Solar Communities Program - Grants of up to $12,500

14 March 2019
Solar Communities Program Grants of up to $12,500 Expression of Interest (EOI) forms due before 28 March 2019 The government has made funding available to help community groups who struggle under the weight of high power prices. While only a few grants are available in each electorate it is important to make an Expression of Interest (EOI), as they say - you need to be in it to win it. Grants of up to $12,500 are available to fund new solar PV, solar hot water and battery systems. Solar systems can generate electricity during the day and the battery systems can store electricity to run lights, refrigeration and air conditioning systems into the evening. Community groups are encouraged to put in an EOI with their federal member before 28 March so I encourage you to fill in the form on my website and return to one of my offices as soon as possible. Application form available at the below link https://www.rowanramsey.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Solar-Expression-of-Interest-Form.pdf

Cowell is situated on Franklin Harbour approximately halfway between Port Augusta and Port Lincoln, it is an ideal place for visitors to break a long journey or to take a holiday and enjoy the pleasant climate and relaxed life style. One of the safest and best fishing areas in South Australia, Franklin Harbour is a land-locked bay with a narrow entrance through which boats have access to the harbour's calm waters.
