Renewable Energy Project: Solar Panels
The Woonona Bulli School of Arts provides venue space at heavily reduced rates to the local community. It operates as a hub for several creative groups who service dance, singing and yoga/pilates. It is also a registered charity and offers free venue hire for charitable fundraisers and educational workshops; along with annual sponsorships to local community groups. Its focus is on mental health and environmental awareness.
The buildings had a number of single phase supplies and shared tenancies. They had just been forced to upgrade their electrical supply and were in the midst of rethinking a number of old hot water systems and airconditioning units. CORENA came along at the right time to advise on making the most of a well-sized solar system and to keep using energy across the site efficiently.
