Spend summer swimming for a sustainable future!

Energy Imaging, and our good friends at Graphic Ark, are proudly supporting Swim for Solar in the Canberra/Queanbeyan region this summer. This great initiative will be launched at 4.30 pm on Friday 27th November at Queanbeyan Pool. Come along and see the Energy Imaging team challenge the politicians, Mike Kelly and Shane Rattenbury, to a swim-off!

LifeSaving Energy Swims for Solar is a community project to raise funds to install solar panels on community buildings. The project is an initiative of Clean Energy for Eternity (CEFE).

People of all ages and swimming ability can join in the fun. Jump in the pool to stay cool this summer and help capture those rays to reduce your community's carbon footprint!

CEFE is a not-for-profit group which aims to inspire local community action on climate change. CEFE began in Bega in 2006 and each year runs the LifeSaving Energy Big Swims. So far the swims have raised over $60,000 to install solar panels and wind turbines on surf lifesaving clubs, fire brigades and community buildings in NSW.

Check to see if your local pool is involved. If not encourage them to do so. For more info click here
