Benefits

  • Reduce the plant’s carbon footprint, which will equate to an 11.5 tonnes reduction in carbon emissions
  • Generate 26,500 kWh (kilowatt hours) per year of electricity, which will lead to a significant reduction in the demand for imported electricity at the site
  • Boost the resilience of the plant by ensuring a continuous supply of energy in the case of power outages
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase energy efficiency at the plant

Steps

  • Constructed the 180 square metres solar array in the northern part of the wastewater treatment plant, with this location selected to optimise the production of electricity
  • Installation of 112 photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to generate clean, renewable electricity for the plant
  • All construction works were undertaken within the boundary of the site to minimise disruptions to residents of the surrounding area
