Mullum Showgrounds

The Mullumbimby Showgrounds 10kW PV system was our second project. It was funded through a combination of very generous donations, fundraising and $5,000 from the Stronger Communities Grants Program.

Technical stuff

Panels: 38x Trina Honey multi 270W panels

Inverters: Fronius Symo inverter

It also includes wifi communications for remote monitoring of the system’s output.



The PV system significantly reduces the Mullum Showground’s electricity bills, keeping more community money in the area. It also avoids the production of about 10.5 tonnes of greenhouse gases per year!

And here’s what the good Showgrounds folk had to say ….

“The Showground is managed for the community by a ‘Trust’ of 8 locals, appointed by the state gov’t. We are over the moon to escape (partially) from coal-fired power and at no cost, with the amazing help of COREM. Big thanks!”
