Magnetic Island saves 40% on power
Magnetic Islandís Solar Cities project is winding down following a formal handover by Ergon to the, recently established, Magnetic Island Menís Shed, last Saturday. And, with a reduction of 40% of power use across the Island, had not Solar Cities begun its work here, Islanders might feel justifiably proud. This was certainly the opinion of Ergonís Ian Cruickshank, who was full of thanks to Islanders for this impressive achievement.

Solar City project gets another gong
While some may wonder how it is that a program that encourages people to use less energy is regarded as a form of marketing, the experts were in no doubt as the Townsville Queensland Solar City project - much of which has been developed on Magnetic Island - has just won the inaugural, national green marketing award by the Australian Marketing Institute this week - the third award for the project in a month.
