Newcastle City Council’s Summerhill Waste Management Centre is transforming into a renewable energy hub with a 5MW solar farm being built alongside a 2.2 MW landfill gas generator and small wind turbine. The council has borrowed AU$6.5 million from the CEFC to help finance the solar farm, which is expected to save the council around AU$9 million over the life of the facility, once construction and operational costs have been factored in.
