Project 29: Kuranda Neighbourhood Centre, Qld
The Kuranda Neighbourhood Centre is a non-profit, incorporated Association. It provides a wide range of programs and support for individuals, families and the community. Website: https://kurandanc.com/
Kuranda NC’s 7kW solar installation was funded in just one month using a combination of new donations and loan repayments from earlier CORENA projects, and was switched on in October 2018.
Our loan agreement with Kuranda NC allowed for a 4.5 year payback time, covered by savings on their power bills, but they received some unexpected funding and chose to pay out their loan in full in June 2020. We then used that early repayment to help fund the Abbeyfield project.
