Sunny Shire has been supporting solar uptake in the Shire for several years, holding public information nights and answering questions from the public.
We’re helping people use renewable energy more cheaply.
Jonathan Prendergast and Jay Bayner, the cofounders of Sunny Shire, both work professionally in large-scale renewable energy industries. Jonathan Prendergast is the technical director of Business Renewables Centre Australia and has worked on the UTS Power Purchase Agreement with 32 MW Walgett Solar Farm and 4.5 MW District Cooling Contract. Jay Banyer has worked on virtual power plants at AGL’s New Energy and is currently the Chief Technical officer at Everty, an electric vehicle start-up company.
Their advice has helped 170 Sutherland Shire households install 1,200 kW of solar, delivering over $2.5 million worth of investment in renewable energy. Sunny Shire has also been working on best practice interest free loans for Shire community groups seeking to install solar, solar for schools, business, and battery bulk buys.
