Going green with solar

Going green with solar ​The City of Canterbury Bankstown is going ‘green’ by switching to solar energy as part of its commitment to saving money on power bills and addressing climate change at a local level. No going green solar canterbury bankstown  

​The City of Canterbury Bankstown is going ‘green’ by switching to solar energy as part of its commitment to saving money on power bills and addressing climate change at a local level.

Five new solar panel systems will be installed at:
  • The new Yagoona Community Centre;
  • Canterbury-Bankstown Arts Centre;
  • Belmore Senior Citizen and Baby Health Centre;
  • ​Belmore Youth Resource Centre; and
  • ​​Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre.
Administrator Richard Colley said these upgrades will radically improve the sustainability of the buildings, making them some of City’s most energy efficient.
We have already installed 10 solar systems in its facilities so far which have saved approximately $241,000 in power costs, more than 1,240 tons of carbon dioxide and helped generate more than 1,239,586 kWh,” Mr Colley said.
“Solar power will play a key role in reducing our energy costs, tackling climate change and reducing emissions today, tomorrow and well into the future.
“After we roll out these next five solar systems, we estimate we will double our annual solar generation capacity.
“I am encouraging businesses and residents to investigate whether they too can save money and play their part in protecting our environment.
“This year Council is part of the Our Energy Future project, which aims to significantly increase renewable energy consumption in Canterbury-Bankstown.
“We have approximately 70,000 houses in our City, and only 5,983 are solar powered. I hope by signing up to this program and upgrading Council’s own energy practices, more people will do the same and make the switch.
“There’s no denying many people are being hit hard with rising energy costs so it’s time to start thinking about other ways to potentially minimising the impact.”
To find out more information on energy efficiency and renewable energy, six free information sessions will be held across the City from Wednesday 9 August to Saturday 7 October.
To sign up to an information session, go to or call 1300 338 915.
