43. Parkholme solar

Solar installed on roof of Parkholme child care centre

Project 43 – Parkholme solar, SA

The Parkholme Community Child Care centre provides long daycare services to the local community. Back in 2016 we loaned the centre the funds for LED lighting (since fully repaid into our revolving fund – Project 10), and now we have funded a 15kW solar installation for them.

* 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!
