3 February 2010

Lismore City Council has won a State Government grant of nearly a quarter of a million dollars for water savings projects in five local public buildings, Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George has announced.

The funding from the Climate Change Fund supports Council's CBD GREENovation Project,” Mr George said.

“The aim is to save around 69,000 litres of water each year. In addition it will reduce the city's carbon emissions by 45,000 tonnes a year.”

“The Lismore Library, Adult Community Education Centre, Lismore Neighbourhood Centre, and Council's CBD Customer Centre will undergo a combination of green renovations including an energy efficient lighting retrofit and the installation of solar hot water, insulation, solar voltaic systems, rainwater tanks and timers.”

“The project will be complemented by an interactive and relocatable educational display to communicate ways to save water and energy at home or in business,” Mr George concluded.
