Regional Council Recommends Funding For Solar Farm

A proposed solar farm that would help subsidise heating costs for low-income earners in Flaxmere has passed its next milestone.

The project, Power to the People, is seeking a $500,000 from Hawke’s Bay Regional Council as part of its Sustainable Homes programme.

The council’s Environmental Solutions Committee received a paper about the funding at a meeting on Wednesday.
