Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 11th 2009
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 12, 2009 15 Public facilities incentives: Think of simple, green projects Canada Bay deputy mayor Jeanette O'Hara, Drummoyne State MP Angela D'Amore and Environment Minister Carmel Tebbutt at Concord Oval. INNER West community groups and charities have been invited to apply for grants for energy and water-saving projects. The grants are available under the second phase of the $30 million Public Facilities Program, which was launched by State Environment Minister Carmel Tebbutt at Concord Oval last week. The program provides grants for projects that demonstrate practical water and energy savings in public facilities such as sporting grounds, schools and community halls. ''The funding will cover the cost of implementing simple measures such as lighting retrofits, installing rainwater tanks, replacing electric hot water systems and installing water-efficient toilets and fixtures, up to a maximum of $40,000,'' Ms Tebbutt said. Concord Oval was chosen as the venue for the launch as it has been trialling a computerised system to save water and energy. The technology uses sensors which measure rainfall, evaporation and wind direction or speed, and automatically disable or override pre- programmed lighting and irrigation systems. Trials have shown a reduction in energy and water use of up to 20 per cent. A $220,000 grant awarded under the first phase of the Public Facilities Program will allow Canada Bay to expand the project across 17 council parks and open spaces, saving up to 20 million litres of water a year. Drummoyne State Labor MP Angela D'Amore and Canada Bay deputy mayor Jeanette O'Hara also attended the launch. ''These grants are not only a win for the environment,'' Ms D'Amore said. ''More efficient use of water and electricity will save money for community groups and charities.'' The second round of funding will open for applications on March 2. It will include a new community savers category which provides grants of up to $40,000 each for not-for-profit organisations.
