NZ music artist Jon Lemmon has lent his song "It's Gonna Be Alright" for solarcity's #nzforgood video challenge

#nzforgood video challenge open for entries

We’re inviting Kiwis to express themselves with a post-lockdown celebration of positivity as part of our #nzforgood programme to help fast track New Zealand to a Zero Carbon future. 

The #nzforgood video challenge gives Kiwis the opportunity to take part in a national feel-good movement, dance like no one’s watching, and express joy and positivity. Entrants are invited to record a video entry and enter online to take part in NZ’s greatest dance compilation.

NZ music artist Jon Lemmon has lent his uplifting song “It’s Gonna Be Alright” as the soundtrack, the perfect remedy for NZ’s post lockdown feeling. Jon has been a longtime supporter of solarcity, performing in our first-ever “Gig for Good” in 2018 when we launched our innovative solarZero energy service. 

“Our #nzforgood programme is all about getting Kiwis to join a virtual movement to help get NZ to a Zero Carbon future. With Jon’s track we’ve got an opportunity to show our enthusiasm for this beautiful country we live in, and how we’re going to make sure that future generations enjoy the benefits of a cleaner environment by each of us doing our bit to help. We hope Kiwis get inspired and energised by taking part in our video challenge - we’re looking forward to getting all that energy gathered in the final video edit so we can share that positivity with everyone,” says Maryanne Smith, Chief Marketing Officer, solarcity.

With the current COVID-19 crisis still affecting our lifestyle and mental health, it's important we find positive outcomes from the lockdown period and the environmental benefits it provided. We believe Kiwis want to take action against climate change, and powering their homes with solar, and encouraging others to consider this, is an important step.

“I’m stoked to get behind #nzforgood. It’s all about getting more sunshine into our lives. I really missed playing shows during lockdown. Music and dance have this magic ability to uplift spirits. I hope my track shines a little extra light into your day. Can’t wait to see the videos you make!” says NZ music artist Jon Lemmon.

Apart from the good vibes - what’s in it for me?

solarcity pledges to plant a tree via Trees that Count in the entrant’s name for the first 100 video entries received. Each entrant will also go in the draw to win eco products from the Flox range.

How to enter 

Kiwis can sing along, dance and get their friends, families and workmates involved. Entry opens on 28 July and closes 21 August 2020. 

To enter, Kiwis of all ages are invited to submit a video showing their support of #nzforgood and a Zero Carbon Future for NZ.
