Bega Valley Shire Partnership Action Pledge
Our power partners are commited to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on Council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centres, sporting grounds, and Council offices.
Power Council operations by renewables, directly (with solar PV or wind), or by purchasing Greenpower (from electricity retailers). Set targets to increase the level of renewable power for council operations over time.
Support community energy projects (with location and planning support) so that residents (such as renters) can band together and invest in community renewable energy projects.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Ensure Council fleet purchases met strict greenhouse emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.
