We have applied for a State Government Pick My Project grant to cover the roof of IDV* (next to the YMCA in Macleod) with 50KW of solar panels (about 170 panels).
IDV has been providing daycare for intellectually disabled adults since 1954. We plan to significantly reduce their high electricity bills of nearly $20,000 per year by installing solar panels on IDV's roof (which is ideally oriented for solar). We will save them $10,000 (or more) per year which can then fund more services for their clients. This is a project that IDV could never afford to do and it won't cost you a cent - just a vote as follows:-
Vote first for our project:
Solar Panels for a Leading Banyule Disability Service Provider (IDV)
And then select 2 others
How to vote - Registration is easy!
1. Register with Pick My Project at https://pickmyproject.vic.gov.au/
2. In 'Enter your address or suburb' box, type in IDV or Macleod. Note you can only vote in a 5km radius of whatever address you submit by the Pick My project rules.
3. Go to 'browse projects' at the bottom of the page and 39 projects in our area will come up. Choose 3 - they all have equal weight so order does not matter. You must vote for 3, and for 3 different projects in the one area.
And PLEASE ask your family and friends to vote for our project. Anyone above 16 can vote but each person needs their own email and mobile phone as this is how they verify that each person is only voting once.
