Another CAN project completed.
16 Kilowatt Solar System covering the porch roof of Croatian Wickham Sports Club.
2nd local Newcastle club to benefit from CAN's support & expertise.
After the amazing success of the Carrington Bowlo Goes Solar project, CAN is at it again with the Croatian Wickham Goes Solar project.
This is the 2nd in a line of support based initiatives to help local struggling clubs to reduce their energy bills and help the planet.
Over the last 12 months, the club, with support from CAN, held fund raising events and ran an online crowdfunding campaign to raise money to help install a solar system on the club’s roof.

This system will produce an average of 70kwh per day, providing around 60% of the club’s consumption and reducing bills by up to 50%. The club will continue to improve these percentages with equipment upgrades and other efficiency measures.
We thank every wonderful person listed on this donation page (some more than once), every gig organiser and band who played at Iced Novo, Sun Stroked and Sun Raiser, as well as the great local businesses who sponsored our raffles.
Big thanks also goes to Port of Newcastle for a generous grant of $6000 which helped us bring the project home.
