City of Fremantle Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
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.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Ensure that the practices of local government contractors and financing such as banking, insurance, and super are aligned with council goals relating to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport. Set appropriate criteria for council procurement.
Providing for adequate cycle lanes (both space and connectivity) in road design and supporting cyclists through providing parking, and end-of-ride facilities (covered, secure bike storage, showers, bicycle maintenance and incentives).
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
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 facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Set minimum energy efficiency benchmarks for all planning applications.
Opening up unused council managed land for renewable energy, for example land fills, and road reserves.
Consider disincentives for driving high emitting vehicles such as congestion pricing, or a tiered payment system for residential car parking permits where high emitting vehicles pay more.
