Project story…

Our revolving fund proves to be particularly powerful when we are fundraising for larger projects like this 31.2kW solar installation for Woden Valley CCC. Loan repayments from earlier completed projects covered almost 2/3 of the $38,744 cost of this solar project.

* 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.
