Collab Project with The Ākina Foundation

The Ākina Foundation supports social entrepreneurs and ambitious communities to deliver game changing work in the areas of energy, housing, transport, land-use, and consumption and waste.

We are a small community trust in Blueskin Bay, near Dunedin. We’re well on our way to developing New Zealand’s first community owned wind cluster, and we now need to erect a 30 metre tower to capture the data we need for the next round of planning and consent steps. We need to raise a little more money to help us do it properly. On our team we have Scott Willis, Chris Freear, Chris Le Breton and Niki Bould, and a whole bunch of community volunteers. We’d love to get more New Zealanders involved in our project – by pledging what you can, you’ll be playing a role in bringing 100% clean community energy to New Zealand and shaping a Blueprint for the future. We've been gifted a 30 metre tower thanks to Garrad Hassan and Trustpower, but it needs regalvanising, new guy wires, anemometers, dead-man anchors, professional rigging and installation... what we have achieved so far has been on the smell of an oily rag and a lot of number 8 wire. This is about to get serious!
Hey, we met the goal and exceeded it. Anything up to $9000 will allow us to get the fencing around the tower done properly, to protect it from cattle. If, incredibly, we get beyond $9000, we'll be able to begin preparing the access track ... it just gets better and better!

So beyond expectations!

Weehaa! We asked for $8200 to raise the 30 metre tower. You all delivered $8805 by the close of the campaign at 4.24pm today! The extra Pledges will ensure we don't have to beg and borrow everything - we'll be putting the extra to use in getting up good fencing around the tower. 100 people made Pledges, that is just SO amazing! We are so happy - the whole Trust is over the moon! Thank you everyone!!

One more reward...

Bruno (who did the wee animation in our clip) is proposing a new animation to help us get just a little further in the last 3 days (and mostly because he loves animating). Whew! energy levels high!
