Ingenero, the renewable energy partner for The Fraser Coast 1000 Solar Roofs Challenge, has donated $5000 to The Premiers Flood Appeal and has launched a free damage assessment for solar PV systems to flood affected authorities and householders who have recently been affected.
“Ingenero will assist authorities and households by sending an accredited installer on-site to assess damage to flood-affected solar panels and inverters. This service is available to Ingenero customers and non-customers alike where Ingenero has geographic coverage” Ingenero CEO Mr. McRae said.
Residents of the Fraser Coast and Bundaberg who have a grid connect solar PV system and have been affected by flooding will be eligible for a free damage assessment of their system, whether Ingenero installed the system or not. This has been made possible via the geographic presence Ingenero has in this area through The Fraser Coast 1000 Solar Roofs Challenge.
The Fraser Coast 1000 Solar Roofs Challenge Spokeswoman Emma-Kate Currie said,
“It’s pleasing to hear that Ingenero has made this donation to the Premiers Flood Appeal. This catastrophe has affect 75% of Queensland and it is really taking its toll.”
In addition to this, Ingenero has also pledged to donate up to $150* for all systems sold before June 2011.
“This means that anyone who wishes to participate in the challenge before 30 June 2011, will have made an indirect donation to the Premiers Flood Appeal, which will contribute to the rebuilding of QLD”, said Miss Currie.
