So­lar pow­ered kindy

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Moss­man and Port Dou­glas com­mu­nity kinder­gartens will be pow­ered by the sun as part of the Bligh La­bor Gov­ern­ment’s $5.76-mil­lion So­lar Kinder­garten In­stal­la­tion Pro­gram.

Cook MP Ja­son O’Brien said the in­stal­la­tion of so­lar pan­els would help save the en­vi­ron­ment and re­duce op­er­at­ing costs at the kinder­gartens.

“The Gov­ern­ment’s So­lar Kinder­gartens pro­gram is a win-win - the two kinder­gartens will save money and our chil­dren will be at­tend­ing kinder­gartens that are more en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able," he said.

“As well as re­duc­ing the amount of green­house gas pro­duced by each kinder­garten, these so­lar pan­els will help re­duce their an­nual elec­tric­ity bills by up to $400.”
