About the Role

Are you someone who loves working out processes of an organisation? Maybe you love online filing or excel spreadsheets, or making things more efficient and showing people the “light” ie how to do internal operations better. Then talk to us about this role!!

You’ll be a worker for Pingala. This is an unpaid role, but many of our volunteers find career opportunities after volunteering with us.

Pingala has a vision of a fairer energy system, where communities are empowered to collectively own and operate local renewable energy projects; re-localising business and sharing the benefits + opportunities of our transition to renewable energy.

Pingala recently completed their first project on the roof of Young Henrys craft brewery in the Inner West suburb of Newtown in Sydney. The Pingala Co-operative sold all the shares issued for funding the project in just nine minutes and achieved several firsts; in the process: the first operating community solar co-operative with investors; the first community solar lease; the first equity crowdfunded community solar project. Concurrently, Pingala has been working with three remote Aboriginal communities in north-west NSW on energy independence and affordability, plus their visions of increasing self-sufficiency and community resilience.
