Cogeneration or trigeneration installation

Project summary

This project will provide cogeneration at the Wangaratta Indoor Sports and Aquatic Centre to save energy usage and greenhouse gas and to also enhance the sustainability demonstration features at the Barr Reserve Ecoliving Precinct by increasing the demonstration of sustainability to the community and extend the EcoLiving education program.

Need for project

The project costs are beyond the current capability of council and equates to needing to increase council rates by 3.2% over and above normal rate movements. CEEP funding is required to ensure the project can proceed.

Project deliverables and outcomes

The project achieved the outcomes in accordance with CEEP objectives in that energy efficiency has been improved at community facilities. The success of the cogeneration unit installation is reinforced by a state and national award from NECA for Energy Efficiency and environment.
