24 Sunshine Coast Council buildings have solar panels. I’m impressed.

Twenty-four council buildings and facilities have solar panels with a collective capacity of 158kW. The electricity generated averages 242,214 kWh per year, which contributes to an annual saving of $50,114 in electricity costs. The solar panels are reducing council’s carbon footprint by 213 tonnes of greenhouse gases per year.

About EmpowerRepower

I’m a teacher, former teacher-librarian, ex-volunteer breastfeeding counsellor and mother-of-three living on the Sunshine Coast. I’m concerned about climate change, and feel that the necessary changes to prevent the worst outcomes will rely on action from all sectors of our economy. I’ll be trying to share, promote and encourage that action by finding positive examples in our local community.
