Located in Corrimal, Coolgardie Children’s Centre is a local child day care centre that has been nominated for and won the “Most Outstanding Child Care Centre in the South Coast, Illawarra & Southern Highlands” award. The 4.95KW custom system installed for the award winning day care centre consists of 22 solar panels and a Power-One PVI solar inverter. Before making the investment in solar Coolgardie Children’s Centre was paying a large amount per electricity bill and with their solar system installed they are now paying a dramatically reduced amount. This represents a significant offset to the centre’s electricity costs and the money that is saved is now being redirected into learning and development resources for the children. Coolgardie Children’s Centre is a great example of local businesses investing in solar technology; they’re cutting down costs and emissions, but also raising young children in a clean renewable energy environment.
