Vivid Sydney at Chatswood – run on 100 per cent GreenPower

07 June 2016

While this year’s Vivid Sydney at Chatswood features an amazing collection of engaging installations and activities inspired by the fascinating creatures of Gondwana, there’s nothing prehistoric about Willoughby Council’s commitment to ensuring the event is as sustainable as possible.

The Chatswood precinct of Vivid Sydney, ‘WildLight – The Bio-Kinetic City’, is being run on 100 per cent GreenPower when it lights up every night until 13 June.

Perched above Chatswood’s CBD, at the Albert Avenue car park, is Willoughby City Council’s solar farm. The solar farm extends over 200 metres and incorporates 680 photovoltaic panels, saving more than 250 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year.

To help bolster the renewable energy already produced by Council, 14 MWh of power has been offset for Vivid Sydney at Chatswood. Council has chosen NSW wind power, keeping more than 14 tonnes of emissions out of the atmosphere.
