WHAT WE DO

Commercial Solar

Volt Farmer works with trusted Indigenous partners in Bunjil Energy to install commercial-scale rooftop solar. Purchasing from a First Nations approved supplier brings with it the opportunity to support an experienced Indigenous enterprise. Bunjil Energy has an extensive track record of commercial-scale projects.

Solar Farms

Volt Farmer builds solar farms for businesses on their land to maximise the energy cost savings wherever possible. We also identify parcels of land and build our own solar farms. These Volt Farmer projects can then host other micro-enterprises onsite to increase the local shared value for the host community.

Carbon Farming

Under the Paris Agreement drawing atmospheric carbon down and storing it in trees or soil is referred to as ‘Carbon Farming’

Australia received the first carbon certificates in 2019 using a soil health improvement system developed in Gippsland that increases the rate plants absorb CO2. Apart from the carbon certificates the other advantages of drawing carbon down is that the soil becomes much more fertile, healthier and resilient during times of drought. Businesses can buy carbon offsets from this approved method to support Australian farmers and food security.

HOW WE DO IT

Community Engagement

Local people understand their area intimately and early conversations help form the basis of any proposal. Volt Farmer works with local stakeholders at an early stage to collect feedback and ideas on what local people would welcome. Volt Farmer actively looks to create projects that promote the wellbeing of the host community.

Project Design

A mixed discipline team lead by Stephen Todd Founder of Volt Farmer whiteboard ideas to see what is technically possible and economically sustainable on potential project sites. Volt Farmer takes a holistic approach to projects to see what combination of enterprises will bring the best impact.

Project Delivery

Volt Farmer works with investment funders who have a high social license. Once a project has navigated the statutory hurdles our team then works directly with the investors to deliver the projects. From site works to engineering we actively seek to use local labour and due to the Volt Farmer mixed enterprise model our projects provide opportunities for the local community for 20+ years.

Shared Value

Volt Farmer provides local businesses the opportunity to access discounted clean electricity at exceptionally cheap rates. We also create micro-enterprises and economic development packages. Working with schools and community groups to provide educational resources and 
shared learning experiences in renewable energy, ecological and Indigenous cultural engagement.

Volt Farmer is currently promoting regenerative agriculture by providing training and demo days for local farmers interested in learning how to gain drought proof resiliency by adopting carbon farming techniques.
