Council was the lead agent in the Alice Solar City project, which ran from 2008 until 2013 and led to the installation of energy efficiency measures, solar PV systems, and solar hot water systems for hundreds of homes and businesses across the municipality.
Council dedicates significant ongoing funding toward increasing its solar power capacity. At the close of 2017, Council’s eighth solar PV system will be installed at the Alice Springs Aquatic and Leisure Centre, bringing the total amount of solar electricity generated at Council facilities to over 500kW. Further to this, Council has recently committed to develop a Climate Action Plan to address greenhouse emissions in Alice Springs.
The Climate Council’s Cities Power Partnership aligns with the goals of Alice Springs Town Council. As a leader in the local community, Council looks forward to learning and sharing alongside other Power Partners.
