Renewable energy in Willoughby continues to grow, with more solar panels being unveiled at the Naremburn Community Centre on Friday.

Two 5.2kW systems have been installed, one on the roof above Willoughby Community Preschool and the other above the Naremburn Library, courtesy of a Federal Solar Communities grant.


The panels will help Willoughby achieve its target of 20 per cent renewable energy by 2020 for council operations.

Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney said: “This brings council’s PV installation count to 12 across the Willoughby area — contributing 4 per cent of council’s total energy demands.”

North Sydney federal Liberal MP Trent Zimmerman said: “Addressing climate change is a priority for me as I know it is for many residents.”
