The sun shines on Cavendish Street Early Learning Centre, with a recently-installed 5 kW solar system generating the same amount of electricity each year as an average household uses (6600 kWh). This contributes to Council’s goal of reducing emissions by 25% by 2020.
Talking to the children about these solar panels is a way that we can teach them about contributing to a sustainable future.
Tom Foster Community Centre’s commercial kitchen provides food for Meals on Wheels. Its 25 kW solar system will produce enough energy to power five average Australian homes for a year.
Petersham Administration Building's 20 kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic (PV) system is estimated to produce 30,000 kilowatt hours per annum. The panels provide a saving of 31 tonnes of CO2-e every year – the equivalent to taking about 7 cars off the road, or powering 5 average Australian homes for a year.
Don't believe it? You can monitor these savings live online:
Council supports the uptake of low carbon, renewable energy in our homes, businesses, streets and public spaces as part our commitment to a more sustainable future. You can see this in action at many Council and community facilities that take advantage of solar energy.
