Wyndham is set to become a more environmentally sustainable municipality with one of the largest rollouts of rooftop solar panels by Local Government in Australia currently underway.

The project will help Wyndham keep pace with population growth and increasing energy demands.

Wyndham City Council’s Large Scale Solar project is now in its second year, with the roll out of more than 2MW of solar panels across Council’s major buildings.

The project will reduce Council’s annual energy bill by more than $380,000 and reduce greenhouse gasses by more than 2,000 tonnes a year!

Some buildings with high night electricity usage will also trial battery storage to further save energy.

Installation of solar panels on Council buildings is currently underway and may be coming to a Community Centre or a reserve near you!
