Description

This work is being undertaken in three parts.

Part 1 - Feasibility Studies

We are undertaking feasibility studies of our large facilities such as aquatic centres to determine the most feasible way to operate them without natural gas. These studies will be completed during 2023.

Part 2 - Buildings Program Priorities

As part of our buildings program, we are prioritising electric appliances and heat over natural gas.

Part 3 - Retrofitting Facilities

We are retrofitting existing facilities to operate with electric appliances. Electric upgrades have been undertaken at Lynden Park Reserve Pavilion, Hawthorn Tennis Club and the Freeway Golf Clubrooms. However natural gas disconnection has not occurred at these sites.
