Barunga West Community Power Network

27 March 2019
Council has resolved to establish a Community Power Network in partnership with Cool or Cosy, commencing in July 2019. This follows the success of the collaboration of Cool or Cosy with Port Pirie Regional Council last year. The Barunga West Community Power Network will use the same framework as established with the Port Pirie Regional Council. The program provides the opportunity for residents to install an entry level solar panel system to their home which can be paid in weekly instalments of approximately $20. The costs are eligible to be directly debited from any Centrelink payment, ie for those on the pension. Further information will become available to all property owners in the coming months. To register your interest in the project please contact Council on 86352107 or email

Tesla Electric Car Charging Station – Pt Broughton

27 March 2019
Council has recently installed two Tesla electric car charging stations at the Council Office in Pt Broughton, on the Harvey Street side of the office. The charging stations are ready for use. Having the charging stations will attract people who drive electric cars to visit Pt Broughton, knowing that they can re-charge when they arrive. Re-charging takes around 3-6 hours, perfect time to see what Pt Broughton has to offer and have a meal at one of the local eateries! As they are part of the Tesla network, it will be advertised to the electric car community that they are here and ready for use, Council will be providing this service completely free of charge.
