7. Warradale Community Child Care, SA

Quick Win project No. 7: Warradale Community Child Care Centre

Warradale Community Children’s Centre opened in 1993 and programs include Child Care for babies and children up to school age and DECD funded Pre-school for 4 year olds. The curriculum is a play based one which incorporates music sessions, a nutrition program, permaculture and sustainability programs. WCCC believes that high quality care and education of young children is a direct result of children, parents, educators and community organisations working together to establish and maintain an environment that is motivating, enriching and challenging for each child. WCCC recently was assessed as “Exceeding National Quality Standards”.

See what has been achieved so far via the CORENA loan for the Warradale CCC solar PV and LED lighting project

As of 21/09/17, the loan to Warradale CCC has achieved:

Project 7 kW (solar &/or
EE equivalent)
MWh to date
Approx* CO2
avoided to date
Dollar value
of achievement
At Warradale CCC 6.59 kW 21.97 MWh 21.97 t $14,986
At subsequent projects 2.95 kW 37.83 MWh 37.83 t $56,037
Total 9.54 kW 59.80 MWh 59.80 t $71,023

Install date: 07/12/15.
Number of days in operation: 654.

* 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.
Note: The install date shown above is adjusted to take into account the difference between the install dates of the two parts of this project. The LED lighting was actually installed on 12/10/15, and the solar panels on 11/01/16. You can see the solar output component of this project online at https://monitoringpublic.solaredge.com/solaredge-web/p/kiosk?guid=9575422c-971c-426c-8601-971f3a7026e7

This project is now fully funded – Thank You!

Note: Fundraising for the Warradale CCC project was temporarily on hold while we assessed the impact of a new SA network regulation affecting small business accounts with 3-phase electricity supply when they install solar PV. This tariff change made the payback time 5 years instead of 3.8 years, but that is still a good payback time so we took this project off hold and it has now been fully funded.
