32. Tarremah Steiner School, Tas

Quick Win Project 32 – Tarremah Steiner School, Tas

We are expecting to finalise work details soon for a 100kW solar installation for Tarremah Steiner School in Tasmania. This is a rather special project to help them become a model sustainability school, which has enthusiastic support from students and their community.

Funding will be a joint effort. The school community will be raising funds to be donated directly to the school solar fund, and CORENA is raising funds in tandem to provide an interest-free loan to cover the rest of the cost. Accordingly our target amount may need to be modified as the total of both nears the total amount required. In the meantime we have already been setting aside recent loan repayments from completed projects to help fund this project since we knew it would be larger than usual.
