Hawkesbury City Council is embarking on a new solar initiative as part of its long term sustainability goals to reduce emissions and save energy.

Hawkesbury City Council is leading the way with new solar installations to improve sustainability outcomes by reducing our carbon footprint and saving energy, something our staff have been steadfastly working towards as part of delivering on our Community Strategic Plan 2017-2036.

The Hawkesbury Solar Program will install 600kW in total solar power that will generate electricity for Council sites and provide cost savings for the community.

Ten sites have been chosen for the Hawkesbury Solar Project:

  • Deerubbin Centre Precinct
  • Hawkesbury Leisure & Learning Centre
  • Hawkesbury Regional Museum
  • Oasis Fitness & Aquatic Centre
  • Wastewater Treatment Facility, South Windsor
  • Wastewater Treatment Facility, McGraths Hill
  • South Windsor Family Centre
  • Wilberforce Depot
  • Council Administration Precinct
  • Hawkesbury City Waste Management Facility, South Windsor

Council’s Hawkesbury Solar Program is a continuation of the successful Light Years Ahead Program which was implemented in 2014-2016.

Light Years Ahead is an energy efficiency and renewable initiative coordinated through WSROC which includes LED lighting, solar installations, building upgrades and advocacy initiatives to achieve better energy outcomes for Western Sydney councils and their communities.
