Go ahead for solar art installation
The School of Art is set to shine in the sustainability stakes with a new solar panel array.
The 40 kilowatt array will produce about 70,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually (enough to power about 10 houses), cutting the School’s carbon emissions by more than five per cent.
The project will contribute toward reaching the University’s aim to reduce overall emissions by 35 per cent by 2020.
Set to be completed by the end of the year, the installation is the result of the first large grant awarded by the University’s Carbon Reduction Fund, which provides interest-free loans for green projects around campus.
Established in 2009, the Fund approved grants totalling $600,000 in 2011, including a contribution to the solar array on the ANUSA building.
