Surf club gets solar hot water

THE BELLINGER Valley North Beach Surf Life Saving Club is about to become a whole lot greener.

Thanks to the NSW Government’s Climate Change Fund, the club will be installing a climate-friendly solar hot water system.

The $8730 project is part of the Community Savers stream of the NSW Government’s Climate Change Fund to help community organisations save water, power, carbon pollution and money on bills.

“With this funding we are really making a difference in our community,” Bellinger Valley North Beach Surf Life Saving Club’s Maree Young said.

“Not only are we saving energy, we are saving money on our bills and are able to show to the wider community how they can save energy as well.”

The funding will enable the Surf Life Saving Club to cut its energy use by 40 per cent and save more than a tonne of carbon pollution a year.

The Bellinger Valley North Beach Surf Life Saving Club project was one of 247 to receive $5.9 million under the NSW Climate Change Fund Public Facilities Program Community Savers stream.
