21. CERES Environment Park, Vic

Quick Win project No. 21: CERES Environment Park, Vic

CERES Environment Park is an award winning, not for profit, sustainability centre located on a regenerated landfill site in East Brunswick, Melbourne.
CERES runs extensive environmental education programs both at the park and into the community: urban agriculture projects, sustainability technology demonstrations, and social enterprises including a grocery, café, community kitchen, organic online supermarket, and a permaculture nursery.
CERES was at the forefront of renewable energy in Melbourne. In 1993 there was a cutting edge grid-interactive hybrid power station that contributed about 25% of electricity needs. But with growth and aging of technology that contribution dropped significantly.
In 2017 CERES adopted a goal to be zero carbon emissions by 2025. It is important to walk the walk as well as talking the talk. The first strategies to achieve the goal are to reduce demand and to increase solar generation by utilizing existing roofs.
This new solar installation, assisted by CORENA, will be of great benefit in achieving the zero emissions goal and will be a resource for renewable energy education.

CERES project is now fully funded – Thank you!

Note: CERES are planning not one but three new solar PV installations and we originally agreed to fund the 20kW installation for the Chook House. However, a very generous philanthropist has since offered to pay for the Chook House and Merri solar installations, so we are now going to fund the new 9.24kW installation on the Human Powered Classroom instead. We will also be lending CERES enough to cover the network protection equipment that will be required in order to enable such a large overall amount of solar PV.

18. Mansfield Kindergarten, Vic

Quick Win project No. 17: Mansfield Kindergarten, Vic

Mansfield Kindergarten is a not for profit, community run organisation that has been providing quality early childhood education to our local families for the past 65 years. For many, the kindergarten is an introduction to the local community and there are very few in our small town who have not had direct or indirect involvement. The kindergarten’s program has a strong emphasis on the natural environment, with a highlight being the 4 year old Earth Kinder program. The provision of solar panels on the kindergarten building will greatly compliment the environmental and sustainable introduction given to our young students and families and will assist with the long term financial viability of this important organisation.

See what has been achieved via the CORENA loan to Apprenticeships Queensland so far

As of 14/07/18, the loan to Apprentcieships Qld has achieved:

of achievement
At Apprentcieships Qld 30.00 kW 40.14 MWh 40.14 t $30,488
At subsequent projects 4.35 kW 0.53 MWh 0.53 t $7,375
Total 34.35 kW 40.67 MWh 40.67 t $37,863

Install date: 25/10/17.
Number of days in operation: 262.

* 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 has been fully funded – Thank you!

of achievement
At Brimbank Bicycle 6.70 kW 12.40 MWh 12.40 t $11,000
At subsequent projects 1.88 kW 1.09 MWh 1.09 t $2,932
Total 8.58 kW 13.49 MWh 13.49 t $13,932

Install date: 07/04/17.
Number of days in operation: 463.

* 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 has been fully funded – Thank you!

Loan repayments received so far:

NOTE: It’s difficult to calculate the exact dollar savings for this project because the solar PV H/W is adding hot water availability that wasn’t previously there and will be using excess solar PV generation to heat the water. However, the Brimbank Board has offered to repay this loan in 5 years, with quarterly repayments of $550, even though it is unlikely they will actually save that much each quarter. Either way they are delighted to have our loan to make this project possible because they are aiming at setting a good example to their community.

Quick Win project No. 14: Tastex Knitwear and Uniforms, Tas
