Quick Win project No. 11: Greenbushes Community Resource Centre, WA
Greenbushes CRC provides Centrelink and Veteran Affairs services, Broadband for Seniors, IT services and training, Heath & wellness facilities, library facilities, Free Westlink broadcasts, Trans WA & South West Coach bookings, and Shire facilities for payments and bookings. They have a large training room for hire and use by community members, and offer school holiday programs, after school use of computers for homework, and study and general business services to the local and surrounding communities.

Note: The ‘At subsequent projects’ figures should be higher than shown below. This is because we temporarily used some Big Win funds to help fund some of our early Quick Win projects, and when we later repaid that amount to the Big Win fund we used a very large repayment from Greenbushes ($8,943) to help pay that back. That money is now achieving reductions in carbon emissions via Big Win projects, but that benefit is not reflected in the table shown below.
* Since the amount of CO2 avoided is highly dependent on the fuel source used for local grid electricity, and since subsequent CORENA projects (partly funded by loan repayments from this one) are in different locations and began at various times when different carbon intensity figures applied, we have used 1MWh = 1 tonne as a very rough approximation across all projects.
