Through the simple and practical solutions that form part of Generation Green™, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is making it easier for customers and their communities to reduce their impact on the environment.
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank is part of the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance, comprising 14 local governments, businesses and community organisations. The alliance is playing a key role in creating sustainable, climate-aware communities and profitable, climate-friendly economies.
This will be achieved through a number of innovative community initiatives and education programs, including the construction of solar parks in Ballarat and Bendigo that will provide renewable energy to local green energy customers.
Together with energy providers, businesses and state government, the Generation Green™ Ban the Bulb campaign funds the replacement of incandescent light globes in local communities with new, energy-efficient bulbs.
The project calls on community-based volunteers, including the CFA and State Emergency Service, and pays these groups to install the bulbs free of charge to the home owner.
To date, more than 60,000 incandescent globes have been replaced
