Making a splash with energy savings

We are undertaking a major project to slash our greenhouse gas emissions and help keep our environment clean and green for future generations.

Our Energy Performance Contract project has commenced energy-efficiency upgrades for 5 major Council buildings.

Project highlights include installing new high-efficient boilers to heat the pools at Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre and the Boroondara Sports Complex in Balwyn, as well as upgrading over 4000 lights to high-efficient LEDs.

This $2.5 million project is set to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 1760 tonnes each year, which is equivalent to taking 377 cars off the road.

The project will also reduce Council’s energy and maintenance costs by over $250,000 per year.

So next time you use these facilities, we hope you will continue to enjoy them knowing they are more environmentally friendly.
