First community solar farm for Lismore switches on!

The first of two Lismore Community Solarfarm projects is now up and running with the solar farm installed and generating energy on the roof of the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre. Very exciting!

After several years of hard work between Farming the Sun, Lismore City Council and a community committed to renewable energy, it is incredibly exciting to see this first solarfarm now powering one of Lismore’s biggest facilities.

Local solar installer Rainbow Power Company was the successful tenderer (via the Council) and installer for the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre solarfarm. Well done Rainbow Power Company!
