We are leading the way in energy efficiency with the installation of over 700 kilowatts of solar panels across 19 Council owned buildings.
Renewable energy is being used to run our sports clubs, community centres and neighbourhood houses.
This is part of our Solar and Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) program delivering renewable energy and environmentally sustainable design improvements to Council buildings. This includes solar photovoltaics PV, battery storage, energy efficiency and building fabric enhancements.
Renewable energy is being used to run our sports clubs, community centres and neighbourhood houses. This helps reduce Council greenhouse gas emissions, saves on costs and supports our local environment for future generations.
Rolling out over five-years, the Solar and Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) program is part of our commitment to climate adaptation as set out in the Manningham Climate Emergency Response Plan (CERP).
