Our New and Improved Energy Efficient Theatre

City of Parramatta Council has recently completed energy saving upgrades at Riverside Theatres.

These upgrades saw:

  • The installation of more efficient lighting systems
  • Power factor correction and voltage reduction
  • The installation of a solar hot water system
  • A new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system

So far, these upgrades have resulted in an 11% reduction in energy use, with further savings expected with the newly commissioned HVAC.

Funding for these upgrades has been provided by the Federal Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and the NSW Government’s Waste and Sustainability Payment.

Watch this space for details of more upgrades and improvements.
