Pegasus to be powered by solar panels

Wednesday 18 April 2018

Today ActewAGL kicked off its Solar Grant Program by installing a rooftop solar system to Pegasus, who provide lessons and equestrian activities for riders with a disability. This donation is part of our $100,000 commitment to help local charities and community organisations manage their energy costs.

“The Solar Grants Program is one of the initiatives under our Energy Support Fund that will help Pegasus future proof themselves from increases in electricity costs,” said ActewAGL General Manager Retail Ayesha Razzaq.

“Pegasus makes a big contribution to our community, so it’s great to support them to be more sustainable through providing and installing energy efficient solar systems.

“This 5.4kW system will enable Pegasus to save around $1,000 annually, which can be diverted towards their vital community programs.

Pegasus CEO Jane Thompson ‘flicked the switch’ today, connecting the new solar system to the ACT electricity network.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank ActewAGL for including us in their Solar Grants Program, this is a fantastic program that will not only help us today but throughout the years. 

“These solar panels will allow us to direct the savings back to where it’s needed most and that is delivering quality horse facilitated therapy to children and young adults with a disability,” said Pegasus CEO Jane Thompson.
