You can now check out Huntsville’s new solar panels. Construction is now complete on six town-owned buildings, which includes the Civic Centre, Huntsville Public Library, Madill Yard Huntsville and Port Sydney Fire Halls and the Port Sydney Community Hall. If you want to see the energy being generated in real time, you can. The Town says this is a demonstration of Huntsville’s leadership in renewable energy and will help reduce our carbon footprint.
