Miriam Vale school switches to ?green power



MIRIAM Vale State School has switched to 'green energy' with the support of council, Ergon Energy and the State Government.

A $25,000 solar power system has been installed on the school's roof which was chosen by Miriam Vale Shire Council to partner it by becoming a solar facility.

The system will enable the school to generate 'green energy'' and provide students with a valuable hands-on learning tool to help residents find out about the benefits of renewable energy.

The project is part of council's participation in Ergon Energy's 'Getting Green with Local Government' program.

Mayor Tom Jeffery said through the program, the project received a $25,000 photovoltaic system that would help the building generate its own power.
