Townsville – Solar City


The Townsville Queensland Solar City project is part of the Australian Government’s leading-edge Solar Cities program, which aims to trial new, sustainable models for electricity supply.

The project has incorporated a range of initiatives to reduce wasteful energy usage, increase solar energy usage and cut greenhouse gas emissions by more than 50,000 tonnes.

The diagram below shows the five initiatives and consortium members that make up the Townsville Queensland Solar City project.

Ergon Energy leads the project consortium and has also developed the flagship project initiative, the Magnetic Island Solar Suburb transformation, in addition to the iconic solar photovoltaic installation at the Townsville RSL stadium. Delfin Lend Lease, Honeycombes Property Group and Cafalo Ptd Ltd are all looking at solar energy and energy efficiency applications in property developments. Townsville City Council’s Citysolar community capacity building and education program underpins and strengthens all the project initiatives.
