Australia: Tathra solar farm a shining light for community

TATHRA'S community solar farm has turned from imagination in to reality.
At the official launch on Saturday morning, Matthew Nott from Clean Energy for Eternity and Bega Valley Shire Council general manager Leanne Barnes signed a memorandum of understanding, sealing the deal for a large solar array to be installed at the Tathra Treatment Plant.
The solar panels will spell IMAGINE when seen from the air by passengers aboard flights into Merimbula.
When complete, the solar farm will produce up to 50kW and account for 50 per cent of the power needs of the sewage treatment plant, which the council said costs around $50,000 a year to run.
