PCYC Queensland is undertaking several initiatives to improve energy efficiency across our clubs and reduce our carbon footprint.
Our partnership with Gem Energy to deliver a multi-site commercial solar power project across a number of clubs, is part of an initiative to ensure PCYC Queensland’s future sustainability. The installations include over 10,000 solar panels and multiple Tesla batteries and represents a considerable investment into assisting with future-proofing PCYC Queensland’s local community operations.
Thanks to an Australian Government grant of $1,402,284, along with our own contribution of $722,388, PCYC Queensland has also been able to undertake energy audits and install energy efficient lighting to reduce our electricity and maintenance costs across clubs. This, in turn, enables us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 2,000 tonnes per year.
