Nagambie bowlers are set to be powered by solar, as a new solar system donated by Yarra Energy Foundation switches on at Nagambie Bowls Club.

The 5.4kW solar system will power operations at the popular local venue, saving the club around $1500 in energy costs a year.

The system has been gifted to the club by Echo Group in conjunction with the Yarra Energy Foundation as part of Strathbogie Shire’s wildly successful solar bulk buy program, affectionately known as the Bogie Bulk Buy.

As the partnering organisation in the bulk buy, Echo Group and the Yarra Energy Foundation pledged to donate a free system to a local community group, with Nagambie Bowls Club striking it lucky.

Cr Amanda McClaren, Mayor of Strathbogie Shire Council, said that the success of the Bogie Bulk Buy is indicative of a profound energy shift taking place in rural Australia.

“Since we started the Bogie Bulk Buy with Yarra Energy Foundation and Echo Group, we have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our community for switching to solar power,” she said.

“In a rural community where many people are struggling financially, saving money with solar is a no-brainer.”

“We’re also on the frontline for the impacts of climate change, as we’ve seen from the recent scorching heatwaves. As a community, it makes sense for us to work to reduce our climate impact by shifting to clean energy.”

An application for the installation of a promotional sign at 15 Tarcombe Street, Euroa, will be put to Council for consideration at a Planning Committee Meeting on Tuesday, 26 February at 4pm.

This application was originally presented at the last meeting of the Planning Committee on 27 November 2018, but a decision was deferred to allow for additional consultation which was done by way of an additional notice in the Euroa Gazette.

The application was advertised and a total of five objections have been received, raising a number of issues including the size and location of the sign.

Since the deferral of the previous decision, the applicant has reduced the size of the sign from 42.4 to 27 square metres on each side; however this has not been done by way of formal amendment to the application.

Council invites anyone interested to take a look at the application and any documents that support the application at Council Offices at 109A Binney Street, Euroa.

The application and supporting documents can be accessed during office hours free of charge.

Any person who may be affected by the granting of the permit may object or make other submissions to Council before the Planning Committee Meeting.  

An objection must be sent to the Council in writing, include the reasons for the objection and state how the objector would be affected.
