The Northern Beaches produces approximately two million tonnes of C02 a year, with electricity consumption responsible for 56% of that. There are signs that our community has already begun to embrace renewable energy, but collectively we need to do more.
To date our community has installed 13,000 individual solar installations (~70MW), which is a reduction of over 65,500 tonnes of carbon emissions each year (according to the Australian PV Institute [APVI]). This is the equivalent of over 20,300 cars off the road per year!
Council has set an ambitious target of “50% of suitable premises with solar panels installed by 2030”. Our target will not only dramatically reduce emissions, it has the potential to reduce your energy bill too.
A household with a 10kW solar system can save more than $1650 per year on their energy bill (APVI, 2021)
