Commonwealth Bank has partnered with Sydney Solar and Batteries, in conjunction with Australian Women in Solar Energy (AWISE), to help fund the installation of solar and battery at a Sydney women’s shelter. Through the bank’s proud energy partner, Amber Electric, we were able to provide access to wholesale energy prices and SmartShift with Amber. In addition to helping the shelter operate more sustainably, the installation is providing cost savings, which allow the shelter to offer more services to the community.
This month we mark UNiTE 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence, a campaign supported by the United Nations. This donation is part of our broader commitment under CommBank Next Chapter, to help people impacted by domestic violence and financial abuse. Watch the video to learn more about the positive impact of the installation. For privacy reasons, the name and location of the women’s shelter have been withheld.
