When you chip in to a CORENA project, 100% of your donation is spent on a practical emissions-reducing project.
Donations of $2 or more to CORENA projects are now tax deductible (applies from April 27, 2016)
Did you know, each $100 contributed to our first Quick Win project grew to $179 worth of climate goodness in the first 2 years. Click the Impact Calculator below to see your impact!
We believe renewable energy and energy efficiency are the keys to restoring a safe climate and leaving coal and gas in the ground. The future of our planet, and its people, is too important to leave in the hands of politicians and business leaders. That’s why we’re creating a people-powered movement to fast track Australia’s renewable energy revolution, and you have the power to help make it happen.
The extraordinary strength of this movement stems from voluntary contributions that pay for practical renewable energy and energy efficiency projects, with all resultant income then re-invested in more of the same. Choose which project to support and chip in today. You’ll be setting off a chain reaction that will fund community renewable energy far into the future and empower us all.

How it works
Your contributions to the Quick Win Projects are used to provide interest-free loans to community organisations to pay for solar installations and energy efficiency measures. They repay the loan over time out of the savings on their power bills, and their repayments help fund subsequent Quick Win Projects. Your money provides tangible reductions in carbon emissions almost immediately, and keeps on working far into the future!
Big Win Projects
for Big Win project
The initial Big Win Project goal is to build a 50MW solar thermal plant with storage. It will be owned collectively by ‘the people’ and operated for the benefit of all. If around 720,000 people each contribute $8 per week for ONE year, we can fund this solar project entirely by donations. There’ll be no loan repayments or dividends to shareholders, so all profits will be used to build yet more people’s solar plants.
