The Shire of Kalamunda is working to improve the energy efficiency of its facilities and reduce carbon emissions.
Climate change has the potential to affect every aspect of day to day life, with major impacts for future generations. The good news is that every household, school and business has the capacity to do something about their carbon emissions. A lot of changes that can be made towards reducing your carbon emissions, are fun, satisfying, and can improve your health and well-being.
The Shire is part of the Perth Solar City program, and has installed demonstration projects at its Administration Building and Kalamunda Library.
