Customers around Marlborough are signing up for solar – and helping Marlborough kids. Brian and Tricia Dawson have just installed solar and in doing so are supporting another Marlborough child through the Graeme Dingle Foundation ‘Kiwi Can’ programme.
“We have always wanted to go solar and with the launch of the Marlborough District Council solar funding scheme the decision became a no brainer. To be able to support Kiwi Can with iGenerate Solar was an added bonus.”
“We were looking to reduce our power bills, add value to our house and help the environment. iGenerate made the whole process so straightforward and their transparent proposal made the decision very simple.”
“iGenerate is really proud to support Graeme Dingle Foundation Marlborough” says Mark Unwin GM of iGenerate. “I have been involved on the board for the last couple of years and I have been able to see first-hand the great work they do in the community. We have been providing fundraising items for their annual auction, so this is a natural extension of that support.”
“iGenerate and Solar are all about long term performance and value and Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes are all about preparing students for the long term so it’s a great fit for us,” he adds.
For iGenerate, being part of the Marlborough District Council Solar Funding Scheme has proven to be very popular. Having solar installed and paying it off with rates means customers can benefit from solar immediately that the system goes online.
Kelvin Watt, Regional Manager of Graeme Dingle Foundation says “It’s brilliant when our local sponsor partners come up with innovative ways to help fund our programmes locally. For every solar install, where “Kiwi Can” is nominated, iGenerate will fund a Marlborough child in Kiwi Can for an entire year. Helping the natural environment and our community in one installation – a fantastic initiative!”
