LOGAN residents are encouraged to provide feedback on the city's plan for a more sustainable future.

But residents have just another four days to give their feedback, with submissions closing on Sunday.

The new Climate Change Resilience Strategy 2021-2031 is part of Logan City Council's vision to become a carbon neutral and green region.

"This is an important part of council's long-term plan to build climate change resilience and we encourage everyone to provide feedback on the strategy," Environment chair Jon Raven said.

In a step towards reducing energy use, council has installed more than 1000 kilowatts (kW) of solar photovoltaic panels on its buildings.

The combined power generation is expected to save an estimated $200,000 a year in electricity costs and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 1150 tonnes annually.

"Our support of the renewables industry is also creating jobs in Logan," Cr Raven said.

"To achieve our vision of becoming carbon neutral, we must improve our knowledge of climate change and having community input is vital to this strategy's success."
