Wilkadene Solar Energy

Solar Energy & Waste Management

solarphotosIn order to realise our long term dream of being a completely green, carbon neutral company, we now have over 30kw of solar panels installed across the property and houseboats.

This solar input, as well as our water and general waste saving initiatives in the brewery, compliment our water saving ideals around the home.

Currently all grey water produced by Wilkadene Homestead is used to water the garden, while thanks to our new Biocycle treatment plants, 95% of black water is now used for the same process.

All waste water from Wilkadene Cottage is used in adjacent paddocks to provide native trees with desperately needed water during our long hot summer months.
