AGREEMENT: City of Greater Bendigo representatives and BSG members.

BENDIGO Sustainability Group, City of Greater Bendigo and Goldfields Library Corporation have joined forces to install a new solar power system to the Bendigo Library. 

As part of the agreement Bendigo Sustainability Group will fund, install and maintain a solar power system on the roof of the Bendigo library, which will supply about 10 per cent of the library’s electricity needs.

BSG will enter into a 20-year agreement with the City of Greater Bendigo to supply of electricity to the library at a commercial rate. 

The agreement will provide a sustainable income stream for the group to reinvest in other sustainability initiatives.

BSG president Keith Reynard said the project was a major achievement that had taken nearly two years to develop.

“It’s also proven a great model that we hope to continue to roll out across the rest of the city and explore the potential to expand it to other sites," he said.
