At Kuranda NC 7.00 kW 13.49 MWh 13.49 t $10,541
At subsequent projects 3.11 kW 1.02 MWh 1.02 t $3,143
Total 10.11 kW 14.51 MWh 14.51 t $13,684

Switch on date: 10/10/18.
Number of days in operation: 459.

* 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.
