Emerald Going Solar

Emerald began 'going solar' in February 2008, when DRREA teamed up with Emerald Primary School. A 4 KW PV system on the Primary School was the result.

There are now solar power systems on 6 community buildings in Emerald and three commercial buildings (including one with battery storage as backup).

According to government statistics there are 303 solar PV systems in the Emerald post code area.

The aim of 'Emerald Going Solar' is to make Emerald a showcase of renewable energy. Installations are ongoing.
