The additions are a result of the success of solar panels already installed at Wanneroo Aquamotion and the Civic Centre.

‘Aquamotion is a high electricity-use building and the annual savings have been calculated to be more than $17,800 since the panels were installed in October 2012,’ Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

Council approved $76,070 for the installation of the 24kw roof mount solar panel systems at the two sites in April.
