Category Archives: Funded Big Win

Robert Menzies College

This Big Win project COULD have been handled as a Quick Win project because it is for a nonprofit organisation, but since it was our largest ever project and we already had close to enough funds in our Big Win revolving fund we decided to handle it is as a Big Win to start reducing carbon emissions faster than otherwise would have been possible.

The college will be installing a 99.2kW solar system, funded in part by themselves but assisted by this $70,000 interest-free loan from CORENA.

This project is now fully funded – Thank you!
