Solar Powered Loo

The new public amenities at Pat Morton Lookout are now powered by the sun, thanks to Ballina Shire Council and Greener Energy who installed the solar panels this month.

The block, which needs power for the lights and water pump, is now officially off grid, which means both economic and environmental savings.

According to John Crabtree who is the Operations Manager at Greener Energy, ‘There are a great many applications where similar designs can save considerable money for Councils and National Parks and are fabulous for the environment. We expect this system to run for decades to come, without any major incidents – servicing is required no more than twice a year.’
