Rooftop Solar Installation at Wonthaggi Depot and Inverloch Hub COMPLETED

Installation works were undertaken for rooftop solar PV systems at Wonthaggi Depot site and Inverloch Hub. These works were a part of Council’s participation in Stream 3 of the Local Government Energy Saver Program (LGES) administered by Sustainability Victoria recognising that Local Governments, particularly in rural and regional Victoria, own and manage a range of facilities that present opportunities for emissions reduction through increased use of renewable energy.

The cost of this project was $73,007.00, inclusive of grant funding of $36,503 to be received from Sustainability Victoria upon successful completion of the project. The installation is expected to reduce the annual electricity costs of these sites by $15,217 a year, with the investment payback of approximately 4 years.
