About the Role

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. We are now in negotiations with a range of organisations and some extremely exciting things in the pipeline for Pingala’s future and so we are in need of more help to get it done!
