Braidwood FM switches on Solar

Written by on July 18, 2022

Last year Braidwood FM was invited to apply for a Powering Communities Program grant by Member for Eden Monaro, Kristy McBain.

The program aimed to assist community organisations improve their energy efficiency practices and lower their energy bills.

As a result of a successful grant application, Braidwood FM received $8000 to install Solar panels onto our studio.

This has now been completed thanks to Local Pat Clarke Electrical and Station Manager Gordon Waters.

We had a 5KW system installed and this will help reduce our Monthly reliance on grid power. Electricity makes up a large part of our running costs and with the increasing prices for electricity, this will certainly be a welcomed saving.

If you would like to support your local radio station, donations can be at the Braidwood Community Bank or visit our website more further details.

Braidwood FM would like to thank Kristy McBain for the grant and Pat Clarke for his work in installing the solar panels.
