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 12,584 individual solar installations, which is a reduction of over 63,700 tonnes of carbon emissions each year (according to the Australian Photovoltaic Institute (APVI). This is the equivalent of over 19,000 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.
On the Northern Beaches, a household with solar saves on average $1,474 a year! (APVI, 2021)
