South Coast Register readers have thrust their support behind Shoalhaven Council’s plans to adopt renewable energy at a sewage treatment plant.
More than 90 per cent of voters have backed council’s bid to create a solar farm that would reduce long term electricity costs at the Callala Bay sewage treatment plant – a heavy consumer of electricity.
Ninety four per cent of voters said they would like Shoalhaven Council to invest in renewable energy projects in a poll released on Wednesday.
The plant is a Shoalhaven Water site.
As Shoalhaven Council’s largest energy consumer, Shoalhaven Water has been investigating ways to reduce costs and operate in a more eco-friendly manner.
