Making a Difference, One Solar Cell at a Time

Maxeon Supports the Lifeline Albury Wodonga Charity with Solar Panel Donations

In New South Wales, Australia, a charity has been helping their community with vital crisis support for over 40 years.

That charity is Lifetime Albury Wondonga.

And with rising energy costs, they needed help to power their local center, and to secure it for the future.

Maxeon Solar Technologies was delighted to step in with the Maxeon Gives initiative, our Solar Panel Donation program.

A Solution to Rising Energy Costs

From crisis counseling to bereavement support, Lifeline Albury Wodonga really does offer a lifeline of hope during difficult moments.

Funded by two local shops and a team of trained volunteers, the charity faces a constant demand for mental health services, supporting thousands of individuals annually.

It’s confidential one-to-one support, with a trained Lifeline telephone crisis supporter always on the other end of the phone.
But one of the biggest financial problems for the charity was the ever-rising cost of electricity.

A solution was needed – fast.

What is Maxeon Gives?

The Maxeon Gives initiative means all our employees have the opportunity to donate solar panels to good causes.

The aim is to benefit schools, non-profits and communities, around the world.

Maxeon staff also give their time as volunteers on these projects, really helping communities at the grass level.

It shows how solar panels can do much more than just generate renewable electricity.

They are a driving force behind real change.


Partnered with experts KDEC

The Lifeline Albury Wodonga project was only possible thanks to our local partner, KDEC Electrical and Solar, and their excellent work.

Together, we were able to install 22 Performance Black solar panels, a SunPower Reserve 10kW battery and a 5kW inverter, providing a complete solution.

The sun’s energy, harnessed by Maxeon’s panels, now fuels not just Lifeline’s office and call center, but also their ability to assist others. 

“What this means, is that we can deliver critical suicide prevention activities locally. We can answer more calls, and we can train more Crisis Supporters.”

Stacy Read, CEO at Lifetime Albury Wodonga

By reducing the charity’s energy costs, Maxeon’s solar panels free up resources for Lifeline Albury Wodonga to help even more people in need.


Committed to Our Communities

Maxeon partners are committed to bettering the lives of the communities using our solar products.

Together, we can have a positive impact on the future of our planet and its people.

It’s just one of the surprising ways solar power is making a difference in the world. One solar cell at a time.
