Wagga Wagga Council gains Sustainability Advantage

Ecosave has been working with Wagga Wagga City Council (WWCC) since 2003 to improve the efficiency of council’s facilities and work towards achieving their target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020.

Ecosave has completed four performance based energy efficiency projects for WWCC on a diverse range of buildings such as The Civic Centre and Theatre, Council Chambers, the Library, the Livestock Marketing Centre, the Alan Turner Depot, the Botanic Gardens depot and the Airport Terminal.

In 2011 Ecosave implemented a project that was partially funded by a low interest loan from Low Carbon Australia (LCA). This project assisted WWCC to become the first council to implement an emissions reduction project under the LCA program.

These projects have all helped the Council achieve Bronze Partner status in the Sustainability Advantage program and in achieving the Mayors commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

THE SOLUTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED FOR WAGGA WAGGA CITY COUNCIL ARE:

  • Lighting refurbishments, replacements and retrofits
  • Voltage reduction units
  • Lighting controls and power factor correction
  • Appliance controls including sensors and timers
  • Refrigerant Treatment and set point adjustment

These projects have all helped the Council achieve Bronze Partner status in the Sustainability Advantage program and in achieving the Mayors commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
