Carrington Bowlo Solar Fundraiser
Climate Action Newcastle are crowdfunding to help the Carrington Bowling Club to install a full roof of solar panels.
We need your help.
We love this little community club, and want it to thrive long into the future. So we're helping our bowlo go SOLAR!
With the price of energy so high, the Bowlo spends thousands every month on power bills - running the bar and restaurant, and keeping people cool in the summer time. This is an expense that could go into maintaining the club, the bowling greens, or even getting local bands to play gigs.
We estimate this will save the club at least $100k in energy bills in the first 4 years. Yes $100k!!!! That's a lot of cash for a little bowlo.
And with all the energy savings from solar for years to come, any up front donation toward the panels will truly be the gift-that-keeps-on-giving.
Not to mention the best bit - generating more clean energy!
But first thing's first - we need to raise cash for the solar panels
There's two things you can do right now:
- Check out our crowdfunding page at Chuffed.org. Find out how you can donate to support the Bowlo, and how you can promote this campaign to your family and friends.
- Come along to the Carrington Sun Fundy gig weekend! The ‘Carrington Sun Fundy’ is a mega festival weekend at the bowlo 1-3 December 2017 to push the solar fundraiser along. Check out the line up of awesome local bands playing at the Carrington Sun Fundy weekend.
Good news for local bands
All bands generously donating their time and excellent musicianship at the Carrington Sun Fundy Gig will be booked for a real-deal gig from the solar-savings once the system is installed. And the solar system savings will see more cash available to fund bands and fun events at the club in future. Winning!
