So­lar-pow­ered his­tory

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

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.
