Energy efficiency ideas take flight in Temora
The Temora Aviation Museum, the centrepiece of the town, has recently been granted $118,126 in Government funding as part of the Community Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP).
The museum will use the funding to upgrade inefficient lighting systems throughout the public exhibition areas – a step expected to reduce energy consumption by 84 per cent.
The upgraded lighting will also create an enhanced experience for museum visitors by providing a high quality theatrical atmosphere to showcase the museum’s unique collection of ex-military aircraft.
The funding was part of $42 million in round one grants given to communities to improve energy efficiency across their buildings and facilities.
Temora Aviation Museum CEO Kenny Love said the museum was excited to be a partner in the program, which will help boost productivity in the local economy by encouraging more visitors to enjoy the attraction.
Round two applications for CEEP grants opened on 30 October and close at 5pm on Thursday, 7 February 2013.
