Renewable energy

Using renewable energy works towards a smaller environmental footprint by reducing energy use, energy bills and greenhouse emissions.


Projects

We've installed a wind turbine on the shores of Corio Bay and added solar panels to the roofs of some of our buildings.

Watt's this?

The Watt is a standard international unit to measure the rate of energy conversion. It's unit symbol is W.

1 Watt (W) is a unit of electricity at a given moment
1 Kilowatt (KW) = 1000 Watts
1 Megawatt (MW) = 1,000,000 Watts
1 kWh = 1 Kilowatt produced constantly for 1 hour


Some Examples
Incandescent light bulb= 25 - 100 watts
Energy saving equivalent light bulb= approx 5 - 30 watts
A person walking up a flight of stairs= approx 200 watts
An electric heater= approx 1 kilowatt
A family car= approx 100 kilowatts
A train locomotive engine= approx 3 - 5 megawatts
