Powering our community with sunshine

It was a pleasure to join with staff at the Goethe-Institut in Woollahra to celebrate the German cultural centre’s new solar panels, which were installed with the assistance of our Solar My Suburb program and a Woollahra Council Community Environmental Grant.

The Institut now has a solar system that can produce enough energy to power the equivalent of three homes, cutting its bills by more than a third and reducing its carbon emissions by 23 tonnes.

Solar my Suburb is a free Council program, so if you're part of a community organisation and would like some help with navigating the world of solar installation, please let us know by registering your interest at Solar My Suburb.

With Goethe-Institut staff, including Director Christopher Mücher, and German Consul General Axel Zeidler

Nominate an extraordinary local woman

The search is on to find the most outstanding and influential women in NSW, with nominations now open for the 2023 NSW Women of the Year Awards.

The Awards play an important role in recognising inspirational women from diverse backgrounds who are making a real difference in the community and creating positive change. To nominate an extraordinary woman from our community, visit Women NSW before 30 September.
