20. Coast FM Wynyard studio, Tas

Quick Win project No. 20: Coast FM Wynyard community radio studio, 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 radio studio at Wynyard.

At Coast FM studio 5.28 kW 1.03 MWh 1.03 t $9,712
At subsequent projects 0.00 kW 0.00 MWh 0.00 t $0
Total 5.28 kW 1.03 MWh 1.03 t $9,712

Install date: 04/04/18.
Number of days in operation: 49.

* 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!
