Located in Sydney, Australia, the Georges River Council is a group committed to the conservation, restoration, and enhancement of our environment. Seeking to find an opportunity to reduce single use plastic water bottles in the community, they partnered with the popular Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre to find a more sustainable drinking water solution.
As consumer preferences shift towards the taste and health aspects of single-use plastic bottled water, the Aquatic Centre faced significant cost, waste, and environmental implications in order to meet that demand. Moving to a renewable water technology without compromising water quality would be the only solution.
Array Energy installed eight Hydropanels on the roof of the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre, serving members high-quality water at dispensers throughout the facility. Virtually eliminating the need for gym-goers to use plastic bottled water, this array will reduce the need for up to half a million single-use plastic water bottles!
