Energy savings on way for Quantong Community Centre

first_imgEnergy savings on way for Quantong Community Centre Energy savings are on the way for the Quantong Community Centre thanks to the installation of solar panels and new LED lights.Horsham Rural City Council allocated funding via the Commonwealth Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program to have a 10kw solar energy system installed on the centre’s roof and all internal and external lighting upgraded to energy efficient LEDs.Repairs were also made to the roof after it was discovered that corellas had extracted screws from the galvanised iron sheets.Mayor Robyn Gulline said the $25,000 grant would have a positive impact long into the future.“The installation of solar power and LED lights will reduce costs to the local community who pay for services to the centre,” Cr Gulline said.“On top of cricket, tennis and football and netball functions, the Community Centre regularly hosts birthdays, funerals and weddings, so it’s fair to say that the energy savings will accumulate substantially over the coming years.“We appreciate and thank the Federal Government for its contribution to our municipality,” she said. /Public Release.
