Hunter Water Hunter Water

Renewable Energy Project

We're exploring options to install solar power panels on a number of suitable Hunter Water assets to reduce our impact on the environment.

This major investment in renewable energy will take us one step closer to achieving our aspirational goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Fast Facts

Location: Branxton WWTW

Project Duration: 2020-2021

System size: 99.7kW

Background

We are currently assessing the feasibility of behind-the-meter solar projects across a number of our sites. We are nearing completion of what is expected to be the first of many solar projects, a 99.7kW system at Branxton Wastewater Treatment Works (WWTW), made up of both roof and ground mounted solar panels.

Community benefits

Savings made by the project will enable funds to be invested into other projects to support the sustainable growth of the region.

The Branxton WWTW solar project is nearing completion with commissioning scheduled for mid-2020. We will be taking the learnings from this project to inform the future roll out of solar projects across our assets.
