Bundaberg Partnership Action Pledge
Our power partners are commited to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
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. Example projects: Rubyanna Waste Water Treatment Plant Solar System (450 kW); Airport (100 kW); and other solar installations on Council-owned assets. Bundaberg Regional Council will be working on targets as part of our upcoming Sustainable Bundaberg 2030 Strategy work.
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. Example projects: Multiplex Solar System (100 kW) + Battery Backup (200 kW), as well as numerous solar projects to be completed throughout 2018.
Implement landfill gas methane flaring or capture for electricity generation.
Provide fast-charging infrastructure throughout the city at key locations for electric vehicles. Projects include EV Charging Stations (Childers and Mulitplex), future rollout of Queensland Electric Super Highway and Burnett Heads Redevelopment.
Set city-level renewable energy or emissions reduction targets and sustainable energy policies to provide a common goal and shared expectations for local residents and businesses. Refer to Sustainable Bundaberg 2030 Strategy Development
