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

Tastexโ€™s founding purpose is to provide employment and training for people with intellectual disabilities and to be self-funding through its knitwear factory. Tastex is a “Special Work” of the St Vincent de Paul Society, and is an Australian Disability Enterprise.

This project has been funded partly by donations directly to Tastex and partly by a loan from CORENA.

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

As of 17/10/17, the loan to Tastex has achieved:

Project 14 kW (solar &/or
EE equivalent)
MWh to date
generated/avoided
Approx* CO2
avoided to date
Dollar value
of achievement
At Tastex 13.43 kW 16.84 MWh 16.84 t $17,839
At subsequent projects 5.61 kW 0.64 MWh 0.64 t $8,245
Total 19.04 kW 17.48 MWh 17.48 t $26,084

Install date: 21/11/16.
Number of days in operation: 330.

* 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!
