Climbing for the Sun Project

Rana Environmental’s Principal Consultant, Levi Gibson is embarking upon a mission to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania in July 2019 in an effort to raise funds for St Brigid’s Primary School, Gwynneville to install a Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System, and in doing so become the first primary school in the Illawarra to be virtually electricity independent.

The proposed 35kW Solar PV System presents a target budget of $32,400 to purchase Tier 1 technology that includes a 30-year performance warranty.

All expenses associated with administering the Climbing for the Sun Project, both financial and in-kind, will be entirely covered by Rana Environmental.


The Project is seeking your financial support to raise $32,400 in order to purchase and install the Solar PV System. The good news? A donation of just $100 today equates to a cumulative donation of $1,100 in electricity cost savings over the systems 30-year performance warranty period, at the current market rate. Talk about a gift that just keeps giving!

Need more? Your support will not only minimise impact upon the environment and facilitate a more sustainable future for our next generation but will also demonstrate leadership in the Illawarra community. Don’t miss your chance to contribute towards an Illawarra first.
