Case Study: Ecosave Energy Savings Project – Wagga Wagga Council
Wagga Wagga City Council gains Sustainability Advantage
Ecosave has been working with Wagga Wagga City Council since 2003 to improve the efficiency of the 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 Wagga Wagga City Council on a diverse range of buildings such as:
- The Civic Centre and Theatre,
- Council Chambers,
- Livestock Marketing Centre,
- Alan Turner Depot,
- Botanic Gardens depot, and
- 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 Wagga Wagga Council 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 Mayor’s 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 setpoint 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.
