- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 76,000 tonnes each year;
- Install over 3,200 solar photovoltaic panels on private and public housing and other buildings;
- Conduct almost 7,000 energy efficiency consultations; and,
- Teach more than 250,000 residents and businesses how to reduce their energy use and save money.
As part of the Alice Springs project, solar photovoltaic panels will be installed on 230 homes and businesses, 1,000 solar hot water systems will be installed, 400 smart meters will be rolled out and the Alice Springs Airport, the Araluen Arts Precinct, the Town Pool and the Ilparpa Sewerage Treatment facility will all be supplied with heat and power generated from new solar installations.
Alice Springs’ status as a Solar City is well deserved. The town has already embraced solar energy technology, with half of its households already using solar hot water systems.
