ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 6. Goal B: Best Practice Service Delivery 73 Construction of solar power stations in remote communities is increasing in popularity. For instance, about one million watts of solar panel were installed in the remote NT communities of Ti Tree, Kalkarindgi and Alpurrurulam, supplying up to 80% of the electricity demand of the communities during the day. ACTIONS: 64. Explore renewable energy options for Groote Eylandt. 65. Investigate the feasibility of building and operating a solar power station on Groote Eylandt. If feasible, sign a power purchase agreement with Power and Water and/or the corporate investment sector to build and operate large- scale solar power farms on Groote Eylandt. 66. Investigate a carbon offset scheme in collaboration with GEMCO and other carbon emitting private sector partners. WATER & SEWERAGE Water and sewerage on the island is maintained by the NT Governments Power and Water Authority. The ALC believes an assessment of the status of water and sewerage infrastructure in Angurugu and Umbakumba needs to be conducted and a plan developed to resolve current outdated infrastructure and develop expansion to cater for growth in both communities. Engineering assessments would be necessary to establish the status as a first step. It is envisaged that the actual work could be directed to an existing or emerging local Aboriginal business (i.e. GEBIE Civil and Construction, Aminjarrinja Enterprises, etc). This would enhance local employment as well as develop new skills in local people. In the short term, the immediate resolution of sewerage in Angurugu is required to stop annual overflow due to aged pipes. ACTIONS: 67. Work with other stakeholders to develop a plan to resolve outdated water and sewerage infrastructure and to cater for the expansions of Angurugu and Umbakumba.
