Community building sustainability
From 2013 to 2015 Council completed a sustainability audit and retrofit program on 58 community buildings throughout Eurobodalla.
We assessed how efficiently energy and water was being used at each building. We identified opportunities to improve the energy efficiency in these buildings and then we installed some cost effective water and energy solutions at each site.
As part of the project, we also held over 50 sustainability community education activities throughout Eurobodalla to help people save energy and water in their homes.
The project has resulted in these community buildings saving 7,359 kL, 474MWh and 4,553L of bottled gas per year. This saves over $159,000 in running costs and 553 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year!

Ack Weyman Energy Challenge
We hosted The Ack Weyman Energy Challenge in 2014 to encourage community groups and organisations to save energy.
The challenge promoted some easy ways to save energy at home and in community buildings.
Congratulations to the Batemans Bay Cricket Club, they had the most participating members and won the challenge.
We'd like to thank all of the community groups and individuals who got involved and have been helping to save energy and water in community buildings.
This program is funded by the NSW Government's Environmental Trust and Eurobodalla Shire Council.
