Solar installation coming to Dalby Beck Street Kindergarten

December 6, 2019

Maranoa MP David Littleproud today announced that the Dalby Beck Street Kindergarten will make use of $5420 – secured through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme – to install solar panels.

“The Dalby Beck St Kindergarten has been fundraising to upgrade its infrastructure and with the roof being replaced, now is the time to install solar panels,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Solar panels will give this kindergarten a stronger footing to manage its expenses, in this case reducing its power bill.

“The kindergarten actively recycles and composts waste so this is an added benefit – kindergartners will learn and experience how technology and the environment work together.

“I’m a firm believer in bringing people together and improving community services across Maranoa because it has a positive flow-on effect on our quality of life and how we support each other – making improvements to the Dalby Beck Street Kindergarten reflects this.

“Regional communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 5 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities.
