As of 1 July 2021, all Council buildings and street lighting will run on GreenPower, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 17,500 tonnes (CO2-e) per year. That’s equivalent to removing an average of 5,000 Australian cars from the road!
GreenPower is renewable energy (such as wind power and solar power) from government-accredited sources.
Through a long-term Power Purchase Agreement, Council has been able to source GreenPower at a very competitive rate. This means we’re reducing costs, supporting renewables, reducing emissions and contributing to a healthy future.
Anyone can switch to renewable energy by choosing to buy GreenPower, available through most electricity retailers.
