The Hills Shire Council has added 126 new solar panels to  its Norwest administration building, boosting the 400 existing panels output by 73,000kWh. 

This project, which is part of a wider new solar panel project, enhances the Council’s solar power network, with 17 systems located on various Council buildings across the region. 

The Hills Shire Mayor,Dr Peter Gangemi, said, “The solar panel project is another illustration of Council’s continued commitment to the environment.

“We’ve grown to having a total of 420kW of solar power across our network, providing even more green energy than ever before.”

Dr Gangemi said approximately an additional 73,000kWh of clean electricity will be produced per year from the new panels – enough to power 25 electric vehicles every day.

“As well as being environmentally friendly, the solar panels will also reduce our energy bills by approximately $25,000 per year, which means we can spend more money on our community to help our residents to live their very best lives,” Dr Gangemi said.
