IDENTIFY SUITABLE NOT-FOR-PROFIT RECIPIENT ORGANISATIONS
The first step in the Sunshine Project process is to identify suitable not-for-profit recipients. Our due diligence dictates we understand the organisation’s history, operational processes and outcomes in the context of their mission, community impact, compliance record, governance and financial stability. Critically, we need to know the organisation’s security of tenure and longevity in the building(s) it occupies.
IDENTIFY THE MOST SUITABLE UPGRADE
We assess the organisation’s energy consumption regime and identify renewables or energy efficiency upgrade options. We calculate the cost of each option, selecting the option that will provide the most benefit to the organisation. We seek the organisation’s approval (and where applicable, the building owner’s consent) to commence the selected project.
Selection includes meeting the criteria that the project will assist the organisation to:
- Divert more financial resources from energy costs towards maintaining and improving its vital social services to community.
- Reduce its carbon footprint.
- Be local environmental role models for energy generation and/or consumption.
