OUR PROJECTS CREATE SOCIAL IMPACT CREDITS
Our pilot projects contain a combination of onsite sustainable soil and habitat creation as well as renewable energy production.
Volt Farmer will also create ‘Social Impact Credits’ to spread the project impact on local schools, community groups, and good causes. ‘Corporate Power Offtake’ customers can specify where the credits are used whether in the local community or with a cause of their choosing. You can choose what type of ‘Social impact Credit’ you wish to gift ie. Planting, water, energy or recycling.
If you host a Volt Farmer Clean Energy Farm you get wholesale clean energy, project naming rights and ongoing social impact all for less than the cost of traditional grid energy.
This approach broadens the real world social impact of supporting a Volt Farmer Clean Energy Farm
Simply agree to buy the discounted clean electricity and produce ‘Social Impact Credits’ to spend on a cause or social project of your choice.
Host the solar farm and get even cheaper energy.
All Volt Farmer projects generate ‘Social Impact Credits’ – We reinvest a percentage of the project’s construction cost revenue into supporting local initiatives. It is part of our shared value ethics. Our customers get to decide where those credits are awarded.
The bigger the farm the more Social impact Credits. Contracting to buy your power from the solar farm via our power purchase agreement before it is built generates the ‘Social Capital Credits’ which can be transformed into real-world benefits for your social project.
Creating opportunities for collaboration, personal development and contribution
Volt Farmer ‘Social impact Credits’ can be spent on a project of your choice. The plan is to provide a platform where organisations and charities can access these social impact credits to deliver projects they feel passionately about.
SOME OF THE THINGS WE DIRECTLY SUPPORT WITH SOCIAL IMPACT CREDITS
Taking Action Today To Make a Better Future
We believe that to make a better future people need opportunity and support. A core part of Volt Farmer’s purpose is to provide local communites with opportunites to thrive and increase social inclusion.
During our community consultation process we come across amazing local people who work selflessly on improving the lives and the outcomes for others. By providing resources and funding for these people they can help us create meaningful social impact.
Volt Farmer offers businesses the choice of clean power form one of our solar farms or directly from a commercial scale rooftop solar system. Businesses who buy clean energy from a Volt Farmer project can nominate where the social impact credits are spent.
