The St Kilda Town Hall is council's largest energy consuming building, accounting for 20 per cent of total building related emissions.

The new 172kW solar photovoltaic system for St Kilda Town Hall is expected to generate 230,000kWh of electricity, reduce emissions by 300tCO2e, and save $44,000 each year. Together, the renewable energy and ongoing energy saving initiatives should reduce St Kilda Town Hall emissions by 55 per cent compared to 2012 levels.
