Energy Efficiency Projects: CORENA revolving fund

CORENA (Citizens Owned Renewable Energy Network Australia) is a not-for-profit organisation that enables ‘the people’ to collectively fund practical renewable energy projects and reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. CORENA provides funding to not-for-profit community organisations and works closely with them to ensure their renewable energy projects successfully reduce emissions and pay for themselves – usually within five years. Loans are interest free and, once repaid, the community organisations continue to benefit from their energy bill savings.

In 2014, Gawler Community House utilised CORENA funding to install a 10kW solar system and replace halogen security lights with LED sensor lights. They recently made their final repayment to CORENA, and will now enjoy the benefits of saving approximately $1,500 in energy costs every quarter. If you have a project idea for CORENA to fund, why not submit an expression of interest.
