Energy-efficient and environmentally friendly service

Council has engaged East Gippsland companyA1 Solar & Electrical to undertake the installation, with work set to commence Monday, August 9, and run for four weeks. The installation will not impact customers using the facility.

The system is expected to have a payback period of approximately nine years and will complement an existing 65kW cogeneration gas-powered unit that is onsite,to create an energy-efficient site.
