It may not be easy being green, but it’s not impossible, at least if you live in Gloucester Township.
The Gloucester County Times reports the township will use a federal grant for $564,900 to design and install solar panels on the roof of the town hall.
The panels are expected to save taxpayers an average of $4,900 each year on electric usage, according to the report.
The “Solar System” would also make the township eligible to sell “Solar Renewable Energy Credits,” which would end up opening a new source of revenue for the area.
The Gloucester County Times says the township is also pursuing other efforts funded by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block grant.
