Re­newed fo­cus

Eastern Reporter Bayswater & Bassendean - - FRONT PAGE -

THE City of Bayswa­ter has in­stalled so­lar pan­els at its civic cen­tre as part of its bid to reach 100 per cent re­new­able en­ergy by 2030.

Last month, 64 kilo­watt so­lar pan­els were in­stalled on the cen­tre’s roof.

City build­ings that have so­lar pan­els in­clude The Rise in May­lands, Bayswa­ter Waves and the works de­pot.

The pan­els re­duce to­tal en­ergy costs by more than $ 100,00 and car­bon emis­sions by 320 tonnes a year.

Mayor Dan Bull (pic­tured) said the City was keen to en­sure every­day oper­a­tions did not con­trib­ute to cli­mate change.

He said the City would add an elec­tric ve­hi­cle to the fleet this year.
