Vinnies Shops In Victoria Will Be Powered By The Sun
Over the next decade, 91 systems will be installed across Vinnies’ Victorian locations — boasting up to 1.6 MW of solar capacity and capable of generating 1,992 MWh of clean, renewable electricity annually!
Aside from reducing energy-related greenhouse gas emissions, the transition to renewable energy is expected to save the charity organisation a whopping $1.26 million in power bills — which is fantastic news for Victorians that are in need of assistance! Vinnies Victoria CEO, Sue Cattermole, said the extra funds would be diverted to the people that need it most. “Last year, we assisted more than 282,625 people with necessities – rent, utility bills, food. This year we anticipate the demand to rise. Every cent that Vinnies Victoria saves go towards helping vulnerable Victorians,” Cattermole said.
