of achievement
At Greenbushes CRC 5.00 kW 6.82 MWh 6.82 t $9,990
At subsequent projects 0.36 kW 0.40 MWh 0.40 t $376
Total 5.36 kW 7.22 MWh 7.22 t $10,366

Install date: 03/06/16.
Number of days in operation: 325.

* 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!
