Dear Friends Solar Panels
We have exciting news – our solar PV array is installed and generating electricity and so far have generated 190kwh hours of electricity, saving us over €35 on our electricity bill! Our new wood pellet boiler will be installed shortly, and there is lots of work going on behind the scenes developing new information panels and activities which will add a lot of interest for visitors as well as for schools. So Brigit's Garden is entering a new phase of energy sustainability, with a big reduction in our carbon footprint.
It's all thanks to a grant from Science Foundation Ireland and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, and brilliant support from the Tipperary Energy Authority, NUIG and others. Look out for regular updates on our Facebook page. To read more about the grant and our NEW Nature's Power Trail, go here.
Meanwhile, enjoy the Herb Day this Sunday and come and have fun at Halloween.
