Solar Energy @ Council

With around 300 sunny days in Central Australia each year, it makes sense that the Alice Springs Town Council take advantage of this solar potential! Council is pleased with it’s solar PV installations across four of Council’s facilities, as they help reduce our greenhouse gas emission and save on energy bills. The public can view all of the solar power produced by these installations via an online web- portal which provides access to live data on each system by clicking on the below link.

 

 

From 2008 to 2013, Alice Springs Town Council was the lead proponent in the Alice Solar City project and installed 3 systems as part of that project.  More recently in 2015, Council has decked out the Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre with 396 solar panels installed at the facility.  The 99kW system is expected to generate 184,000kWh each year, which is equivalent to the same energy used by over 20 Alice Springs households in one year.
