Engaging with purpose
Community engagement is an important part of our activities and helps us to understand local residents’ opinions and expectations. As the project is also a major economic development for the region, we are looking to employ local businesses where possible and provide grant funding to assist local community groups.
Community Grants Program 2019
As part of its commitment to make a positive contribution to the local community, Ross River Solar Farm has established a Community Grants Program.
The Program will provide funding for local initiatives that aim to benefit the community in the areas of community diversity, participation and sustainability.
- Community Diversity: projects that encourage communities to connect and be inclusive of all cultures, age groups, nationalities and abilities.
- Community Participation and Pride: projects that encourage greater community participation or seek to celebrate the unique attributes of the region.
- Community Sustainability: projects that seek to enhance community sustainability or protect the environment.
