At Synergy, we believe our role is to support and make a difference to the development of the Western Australian community.
More than 500 students from around Perth will take part in a new initiative this term that teachers believe will ignite students’ excitement about learning science at school. The 2017 inaugural Synergy Schools Solar Challenge is a joint initiative between Synergy and the Science Teachers Association of WA (STAWA) that enables Year 6 and Year 8 students to build and race solar-powered standardised kit cars against other schools in semi-finals before a grand final in April.

Synergy has given Thommo’s Garden a helping hand to power its new kitchen and improve its security lighting with a donation of a 3kW solar photovoltaic (PV), battery system and new LED lights. Since its inception in 2009 as an off-the-grid premise, Thommo’s Garden has provided people with the experience of growing their own gardens and the opportunity to learn more about horticulture in a community environment - which they're now able to do without the need of diesel generators.
Synergy is excited to announce a partnership with Josh Byrne & Associates in a two year research project conducted by Curtin University and CRC for Low Carbon Living called “Living Labs.” The research project will focus on ten Perth suburban households who have been challenged to reduce their environmental footprint in some way, be it with solar panels on the roof, water tanks collecting rain or low energy lighting and appliances.
