5 months after a devastating bushfire, a month after the second driest July on record, and a week after the earliest start to the bushfire season ever, the Tathra AFL club becomes powered by the sun.
Whilst our politicians dither, Tathra continues to lead the way!!!!
A 17 kW kW solar system was installed on the roof of Tathra Public School in October 2017. The School’s principal, Lisa Freedman said the project showed what can be done when a community works together towards a common goal. “Its not only the benefits of having the panels but all the community groups working together”. After 18 months the project was completed with funding from the IMAGINE community solar farm, Enduro mountain bike event, a community concert and a NSW Department of Education grant.
