Engadine Flexicare & Education Centre is based in Calderra Avenue, Engadine, near Engadine Library. It is a Not-for-Profit and funded by fees paid by families that use the Centre. Sutherland Shire Council own the building and provide the building for use by the community based Flexicare and education center operations.

of achievement
At Engadine OCC 5.00 kW 6.34 MWh 6.34 t $5,817
At subsequent projects 1.58 kW 0.79 MWh 0.79 t $1,580
Total 6.58 kW 7.13 MWh 7.13 t $7,397

Switch on date: 22/10/18.
Number of days in operation: 317.

* Since the amount of CO2 avoided is highly dependent on the fuel source used for local grid electricity, and since each CORENA project is in a different location, we have used 1MWh = 1 tonne as a rough approximation across all projects.

This project is now fully funded – Thank you!

Sunny Shire assisted with the fundraising for this project and managed to raise $1,165 (20% of the total) from their local supporters. Thank you Sunny Shire!
