Renewable Energy Project: Solar Panels
Manjimup Community Resource Centre is part of the Western Australian Community Resource Network (WACRN) which is comprised of over 100 rural, remote and regional Community Resource Centres (CRCs). The centres are not-for-profit organisations that are independently owned and operated by their local community.
CRCs provide access to government and community services and information, and undertake community, business and economic development activities. Manjimup CRC provides a Centrelink Agency, Department of Transport Agency, access to Government Services, room hire and administrative services.
This solar installation will include a monitor that measures the centre’s energy use alongside energy produced by the solar panels. This will allow the centre to adjust their energy use to maximise the use of their solar energy and minimise carbon emissions and costs even further.
