While I congratulate Council on their commitment to solar power by voting to put panels on various buildings I do think that they need to have a think about their AELEC decision.
Council needs to be seen as a leader in our community, they need to be leading the way and doing what is in the best interest of our community and looking at what is going to save money into the future.
From my front verandah I look across to the AELEC and whether it has panels on it or not will not worry the usability of the centre.
What it will do is make a statement to anyone visiting Tamworth that we are serious about reducing our environmental impact.
Driving into town visitors will see the panels on AELEC and other council owned buildings and know that the ratepayers and residents of Tamworth are seriously committed to a brighter future for our world.
