Council’s latest solar energy project is underway at the Tweed Regional Museum in Murwillumbah. Work is taking place to install a 40kw system supported by funding from the State Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
The installation is part of an on-going Council strategy to increase the amount of renewable energy it generates. As well as taking action on climate change this will also deliver significant savings from reduced electricity charges.
Other projects will include a rooftop solar installation at Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre in Murwillumbah alongside solar schemes at water and wastewater facilities.
Tweed Regional Museum is one of a number of council facilities to get solar installations.
