See what has been achieved via the CORENA loan to Club Italia Geelong so far
* Since the amount of CO2 avoided is highly dependent on the fuel source used for local grid electricity, and since subsequent CORENA projects (partly funded by loan repayments from this one) are in different locations and began at various times when different carbon intensity figures applied, we have used 1MWh = 1 tonne as a very rough approximation across all projects.
Loan amount: $42,804
Loan repayments: $3,500/quarter
Status: Funded project
Installation date: June 27 2019
Loan repayments received so far:
|Work details||Cost||Expected savings|
|65kW solar system consisting of 218 x 300 W Seraphim SRP-300-6MB solar panels, |
2 x SolarEdge 27.6 kW inverters and
109 x SolarEdge P600 optimisers;
Energy monitoring via SolarEdge Modbus Meter (generation) and 3 x CT Clamps (consumption)
|$42,804 (plus $20,000 grant tp Club Itlalia from other sources)||Grid electricity avoided = 75,909 kWh/year
Savings = $14,204/year
* ‘Grid electricity avoided’ refers to the total solar generation per year. It is the amount of more carbon-intensive grid electricity that is avoided at the site + solar exports which are used by others on the grid.
