latest news,

Bev Stubberfield, chairman of the Uralla Showground Trust, said she never thought the board would be able to financially install a solar system on the roof. But the Uralla Showground land managers realized a long-cherished dream of installing solar panels on the roof of the main pavilion this week when Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced a $ 11,550 grant for the project. “When the new Uralla Showground Board was formed, we set our priorities for the future, and while solar was on the list, we all thought it was just a dream,” said Ms. Stubberfield. READ MORE: Mr Marshall said COVID-19 economic finance allowed land administrators to tackle costly but rewarding projects like installing solar panels that they would normally not have the money to do. “From a financial perspective, installing solar panels in public places like the Uralla Showground just makes sense,” Marshall said. “By reducing their electricity bills, land managers will free up funds that can otherwise be spent on maintenance and equipment improvements.” In the case of Uralla Showground, it is hoped that this grant will cover the installation of a 7.9 kilowatt 24 panel system along with the three phase branch circuit wiring. It is still being investigated on which building the system should be installed in order to achieve maximum power generation. Even a modest $ 5,000 per year savings will make a huge difference to the ongoing financial viability of the Uralla Showground.

Follow the Showground solar project seriously, “said Ms. Stubberfield.” This is just the first phase.

“The generous stimulus funding from the state government has allowed us to tick a number of priority projects and now we are in a position to get serious about the Showground solar project,” said Ms. Stubberfield.

“This is just the first phase. Over time we will work on installing panels on all of the major buildings on the exhibition site.

“All savings are fed back into the maintenance and improvement of the facilities for the benefit of our many user groups.”
