Waverley Council riding the wave of energy and water savings
Waverley council is leading the way in energy saving with recent statistics from Ausgrid.
In 2012 Waverly Council selected Ecosave as the provider of an energy and water retrofit project to assist the council in meeting its vision of becoming an environmentally sustainable community.
Ecosave came to the project with over ten years of experience in designing and delivering hundreds of successful projects including projects for the City of Sydney, North Sydney Council, Wagga Wagga City Council and Marrickville Council.
Waverley rolled the energy saving project out across 11 of the Council’s major energy using sites.
Ecosave implemented energy conservation solutions at the following Waverley Council sites:
- Bondi Park
- Bondi Pavilion
- Bronte Park
- Biddigal Reserve
- Bondi Pavilion
- Council Chambers
