Harnessing the energy of the sun, the park is powered by one of the largest private solar installations in Western Australia. Generating 400 kilowatt hours each day, the installation powers the parks lighting and pump systems, as well as a reverse osmosis desalination unit for generating fresh water. The $1.2million solar power installation was privately funded by the owners of Ocean Park. A windmill is used to prime pumps and also act as a giant vacuum cleaner for the display ponds. Energy-efficient fridges and freezers consume 65% less power than conventional units and technologically efficient pumps and filters reduce energy use.
