Village’s time to shine
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.
