Reducing Energy and Emissions

Energy and Emissions Reduction Strategy

Shire of Mundaring's Energy and Emissions Reduction Strategy focusses effort on Shire operations and facilities, starting with actions that can reduce ongoing energy costs.

Shire staff are:

  • Switching lights to more efficient LEDs
  • Adding solar panels to facilities
  • Looking at more efficient vehicles (and electric vehicles in future as costs reduce)
  • Advocating for Western Power to replace inefficient streetlights.

Solar panels on Shire buildings

Significant savings have already been made on energy for the Shire Administration Centre, with solar panels added to the Mundaring Arena and Boya Community Centre and Library in 2020.

You can view live production and consumption data via the following solar dashboards:

Encouraging community effort to reduce energy use and emissions

While the Shire is focussed on reducing its own carbon footprint, we also encourage community efforts to reduce energy use and emissions. 

Residents, schools and businesses can access energy and sustainability information and discounts through the Shire's participation in the Switch Your Thinking and ClimateClever programs.
