Quick Win Project 32 – Tarremah Steiner School, Tas

This project for a 100kW solar installation for Tarremah Steiner School in Tasmania is a rather special project to help them become a model sustainability school, which has enthusiastic support from students and their community. They then hope to inspire other schools to follow suit.

Originally funding was to be a joint effort with the school community raising funds to be donated directly to the school solar fund, and CORENA raising funds in tandem to provide an interest-free loan to cover the rest of the cost. However, due to COVID-19 impacts on the school, they were unable to proceed with local fundraising so the loan from CORENA is now covering the entire amount.

This project is now fully funded – Thank you!
