Become a Carbon Compensator!

Do you feel guilty about your carbon emissions whenever you drive or fly?

If so, we invite you to buy a $10.00 Carbon Compensator Certificate to help compensate for some of the environmental impacts of your vehicle emissions, air flights or home energy use.

100% of this money will be used for solar systems on a mix of community and commercial buildings in Emerald, along with contributions from the building owner or tenant.

Below are pictures of 3 solar systems already installed using Carbon Compensator Funds.

We are now keen to help the following to also install solar -

Solar power the new ambulance station
Make Gemco the first solar powered community theatre in Australia
Help Emerald Vets deliver solar powered pet care
Enable the General Food Store to power its food and drink with solar
Make the CFA a power station

You can work out how much carbon pollution your vehicle or your lifestyle produce, using the Australian Greenhouse Calculator.

Also, this website may be useful; www.greenfleet.com.au
Vehicle Offsets with Greenfleet are used to plant trees and cost about $60.00 a year for a medium sized car.

Most Australian cars use unleaded petrol and have a fuel efficiency of about 11 litres per 100 kilometers. Also, the ‘average’ car generates about 275g CO2-e (greenhouse gases) per kilometer, which means about 4 tonnes of greenhouse gas per year.

Apparently, one litre of unleaded petrol generates around 2.5kg of greenhouse gas. One litre of diesel fuel generates about 2.9kg. One litre of LPG generates around 1.7kg.
