At the meeting of Gosford Council at the 7th of August 2012 the new ‘Climate Change Mitigation Strategy’ will be submitted to council by the directorate of City Services & Water and Sewer. http://www.gosford.nsw.gov.au/council/council_meetings/agenda_reports/2012/08/07/City%20Services.pdf (see pages 196 to 207)
Opportunity O-22a (page 207) is exactly the kind of project where our community group ‘Central Coast Mitigation Strategy’ would like to be engaged in. It states:
Rooftop solar photovoltaic power generation
Install solar photovoltaic systems at 13 different sites including:
i) Blue Tongue stadium
ii) Admin building
iii) Baker Street Car park
Electricity generated to be used for on-site purposes.
Once we are incorporated as an association (in about 4 weeks) we will get in touch with Gosford council and discuss possible co-operation on renewable energy projects.
There is also a new opportunity: Gosford Council has pledged $1.75 million for the new grandstand at Woy Woy Oval.
There should be the possibility to integrate a solar roof from the beginning!
