This system reduces the facility's annual energy costs by $10,000 AUD and reduces emissions by 46 tons per year. Colac Otway also added LED lights that further reduce annual costs and emissions by $2,770 AUD and 12.5 tons, respectively. Interested parties can use the council's Solar Initiative website to track daily solar output at four installations.
