Energy Saving Projects


Council is investing in a greener future through a $1.7M commitment to energy saving projects over the next two years.

Investment in Energy Savings Projects will deliver numerous benefits for the city including a reduced reliance on gas and electricity by slashing energy usage through smarter technology and utilising the free energy of the sun.

The five parts to the Energy Savings Projects are:

  • Civic Centre Lighting Upgrade
  • WWCC Solar Project
  • Tarcutta Truck Stop Lighting Upgrade
  • Museum Energy Savings Project
