Introducing CORENA's 27th project! Clunes Coronation Hall, in Clunes NSW!

Thanks to a very generous donation from a philanthropist organisation, our 26th project at Club Italia Geelong is now fully funded with $5k left over for our next project! It's time to head up to the beautiful Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, up to the small town of Clunes and their historic Coronation Hall.

The Clunes Coronation Hall is a community event space, built over 100 years ago, and run by local residents as a not-for-profit enterprise for the benefit of the local community.

If you'd like more information about this project, or to chip in, please visit the following link:

We're building a solar car park!

Starting next week, in the car park adjacent the Council building in Mullumbimby, will be the construction of $380,000 solar 'roof'.

It will be made up of photo-voltaic solar panels to be installed over approximately 40 parking spaces.

Why?

Well we're committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2025, as well as sourcing 100% of Council's energy needs through renewable energy by 2027.

The Solar Car Park will be a 99 kilowatt solar system which is expected to generate enough power to offset around 20-25 percent of the daily electricity use in the Administration building.

Parking will be limited over the two month construction process. People living near the Council building will notice more cars parking on the street but this will end when the car park is reopened in early September.
