Project story…

The 6.2kW of solar PV for this project was installed by: Light Touch Solar and Electrical, Byron Bay. They didn’t just install the system, but were a huge help in each stage of organising this project, making it one of our quickest and easiest projects ever.

The day care centre received an unexpected grant soon after this project was completed, so they managed to pay off the CORENA loan in just under a year.
