The Mullumbimby Drill Hall is going solar, thanks to community support and COREM (Community Owned Renewable Energy Mullumbimby).
They claim over $22,000 has been raised, which was in excess of their original target.
And that means a larger solar PV system can be installed, says spokesperson Deborah Lilly, and still have money left over for our Revolving Community Energy Fund.
The first project off the blocks after the Drill Hall will be another 10kW PV system at the Mullum Showgrounds. ‘Mullumbimby is one step closer to reducing its carbon footprint. COREM’s vision is for the whole town to be self-sufficient in renewable energy, decarbonised, democratised and decentralised.’
