See what has been achieved via the CORENA loan to Club Italia Geelong so far

As of 03/12/19, the loan to Club Italia has achieved:

Project 26 kW (solar &/or
EE equivalent)

avoided to date
Dollar value
of achievement
At Club Italia 44.30 kW 22.54 MWh 22.54 t $42,804
At subsequent projects 2.82 kW 0.00 MWh 0.00 t $3,501
Total 47.12 kW 22.54 MWh 22.54 t $46,305

Switch on date: 27/06/19.
Number of days in operation: 159.

* 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!
