Zero Cost Energy Future - Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve

To support our goal to achieve a zero cost energy future by 2020-21, we are proposing to install approximately nine megawatts (MW) of solar panels at the Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve. Our preferred location for the solar panels is the northern portion of the reservoir reserve along Main South Road and Blacks Road at Happy Valley.

We want to hear what is important to you, so we can take local input into consideration as we plan the installation.

Engagement activities about the proposed solar panel installation at Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve are currently only open to people who live in Flagstaff Hill, Happy Valley, Aberfoyle Park and O'Halloran Hill. You will need to register with Water Talks to participate in the discussion. Once registered you will receive an email from Water Talks letting you know that you have access to the survey. (Please note this could take up to one working day).

This installation at Happy Valley is part of our wider plans to install approximately 152 MW of solar photovoltaic panels at more than 70 of our sites across South Australia.

The Happy Valley Reservoir provides drinking water to more than 40 per cent of metropolitan Adelaide.

Treating and transporting water requires a lot of energy and we are one of the largest electricity users in the state. Our investment in renewable energy generation will reduce our reliance on the grid with the aim to achieve zero net electricity costs by 2020-21.

Improving our energy management and reducing our energy costs will help us provide reliable services and manage long-term prices to keep them as low and as stable as possible for our customers.
