Project story…

The Sunny Shire community group instigated this project and helped organise the 5kW solar installation. They also set and met a target of raising $1,165 (20% of the total cost) from their local supporters. Thank you Sunny Shire!

* The MWh figure is the amount of grid electricity avoided by solar electricity generation and energy efficiency measures. The resultant reductions in carbon emissions can be visualised as an equivalent number of average households switching from grid electricity to 100% renewable electricity, noting that the subsequent projects have been avoiding grid electricity for less time than the original project.

This project has been fully funded – Thank you!
