Ingenero Pty Ltd and Barcoo Shire Council have signed up for the first Ingenero 2010 Solar Challenge project. The challenge aims to have 20 Councils producing 100% renewable energy by 2010.

Under the project scope, Ingenero has designed and commenced construction on a 2kw capacity solar energy plant located at the Barcoo Shire Council Jundah Administration Centre and a 30kw capacity solar energy plant at the Jundah Sports Complex.

The Barcoo Shire solar installation will also be the first in Australia to take advantage of new energy monitoring technology that will be introduced into this country under a partnership between Ingenero and one of the world leaders in energy and weather services, German-based Meteocontrol.
