A Cool Cubby is a sustainable cubby house. By adding sustainable living components to cubby houses of Community Preschools they will become ‘Cool Cubbies’ and demonstrate wise management and use of our key resources.
Nickel Energy is proud to support the Cool Cubbies program by going into pre-schools and installing a solar lighting system and offering sustainability education that encourages and supports children to be problem seekers, problem solvers and takers of action in their own environments.

Our House Lismore
Nickel Energy donated a solar power system to Our Lismore. Our House is a purpose built accommodation for cancer patients and their families who are receiving care at the new Cancer Unit at Lismore. It is also will provide accommodation for parents who have children in Children Ward or babies in Special Care Unit in Lismore Base Hospital.
Nickel Energy is proud to support this local and valuable charity.
Nickel Energy donated a complete solar system to the Lismore Community Garden. That included panels, batteries, regulator, inverter and installation.
The community garden is open six days a week and provides people with experience in garden design, growth and management as well as food, flowers and fun. Individuals and groups can become involved and cultivate garden beds.
Westpac Rescue Helipcopter
The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service provides vital rescue and emergency services across New South Wales. The Lismore branch of this important service was facing ever-increasing electricity prices and was concerned that critical funds were going towards ongoing electricity bills rather than towards life-saving equipment or services.
Nickel Energy measured the energy consumption at the Lismore base and designed an ideal system that would provide maximum savings for WLSRH. An 18kW system containing Conergy 250W panels and SMA inverters was installed and commissioned on the 30th of June, 2013.
The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service’s solar system should produce around 76 kWh of energy each day, creating savings of around $10,500 per annum. These savings will lead to an excellent payback period for the Service, so funds will to where they're needed most.

Alstonville Football Club
Every year, the Alstonville Football Club’s 5kW solar system offsets enough carbon emissions to equal removing 8 cars from the road or planting more than 341 trees. Plus, the savings that the Club makes from their energy bills means more money can go to where it should – to players, kids, equipment and facilities.
We are proud to help this important local club to power their work, play and fun with renewable energy.
