Cairns Solar Power
Get up to date information about Cairns Solar Power with Australian Solar Quotes
Cairns benefits from perfect weather for most of the year. Beautiful blue skies, warm temperature and soft cool breezes. Then there is a short period in summer where the tropics are exposed to one of Australia’s most iconic wet seasons.
The Cairns community stands behind sustainable energy by taking part in and supporting solar power projects both residential and commercial.
With over 100kW’s worth of solar panels installed through government and council buildings, the sustainable community of Cairns is expecting to save tens of thousands of dollars each year. The latest Cairns projects include the Babinda Library, Waste Water Treatment Plants across the region, The Gordonvale Community Hall and the latest installation is the Botanical Gardens Visitor Centre.
The Atherton Tablelands community is also taking advantage of the generous solar rebates and incentives with commercial projects spreading out throughout the tablelands. With minor rain, the tablelands are one of the most suitable locations in Australia to install solar power systems.
Solar Energy isn’t the only form of clean energy in the region. There is the hydro power plant located on the Barron river at the bottom of the Kuranda Falls. This alone produces enough energy to supply the Cairns suburb of Caravonica. Then there is the Herbeton wind farms located one hour south of Mareeba. This project is set to expand over the next few years with government grants, funding and support.
