Vil­lage’s time to shine

Eastern Reporter Bayswater & Bassendean - - NEWS -

COVEN­TRY Vil­lage in Mor­ley has com­mit­ted to re­duc­ing gas emis­sions by in­stalling Perth’s largest pri­vate so­lar panel sys­tem.

The shop­ping vil­lage an­tic­i­pates to off­set an es­ti­mated 1479 tonnes of car­bon diox­ide emis­sions every year, which is the equiv­a­lent of plant­ing 22,000 trees or tak­ing about 300 cars off the road each year.

Vil­lage owner Strz­elecki Group has scouted Syn­ergy to in­stall the sys­tem, which will pro­vide 1.3 megawatts of power to Coven­try Vil­lage.

Strz­elecki Group chair­man Greg Poland said busi­nesses needed to be proac­tive in re­duc­ing its car­bon foot­print and find more sus­tain­able ways to op­er­ate.

“As spe­cial­ists in re­tail, hos­pi­tal­ity and tourism, Strz­elecki Group strives for in­no­va­tion and is well placed to show­case ini­tia­tives that bring ben­e­fits for the en­vi­ron­ment as well as the wider com­mu­nity,” he said.

Syn­ergy chief ex­ec­u­tive Ja­son Wa­ters said the so­lar in­stal­la­tion was one of Syn­ergy’s largest.
