Did you know Council is one of the owners of NAWMA?.........and they generate 11,000 MWh of electricity every year at the NAWMA Renewable Energy Park - this is enough to supply the power needs of around 1,900 homes.
The Renewable Energy Park combines landfill gas and solar generation technologies and is the first in Australia of it's kind. It is located at the Uleybury landfill site and is made up of:
- More than 11,000 thin film solar panels (1.15MW) and
