16. FM Coastal transmitter, Tas

Quick Win project No. 16: FM Coastal transmitter station, Tas

Coastal FM operates a professionally built studio complex in Wynyard with 3 transmitters covering the NW Coast of Tassie from Smithton to Launceston. It is a community radio station operated by a core of 12 on-air volunteer staff with an average age of 65 who provide 24/7 production for an approximate audience of 40-50,000 listeners for a variety of different programs. This Quick Win project is for solar PV for their transmitter at Table Cape.

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


* 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.

This project has been fully funded – Thank you!
