City of Kwinana Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Electrify public transport systems (for example buses operated by council) and fleet vehicles and power these by 100% renewable energy.
Set minimum renewable energy benchmarks for new developments, for example Denman Prospect, ACT requires every new house to install a minimum solar PV system.
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
Encourage local businesses and residents to take up solar PV, battery storage and solar hot water heating. This can be done through providing incentives (such as solar bulk buy schemes or flexible payment options) or streamlining approvals processes (such as removing planning and heritage barriers to solar PV).
Provide council resources to educate and support the uptake of renewable energy, such as by hiring an internal renewable energy support officer or establishing an independent body (such as the Moreland and Yarra Energy Foundations).
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
Implement an education and behavior change program to influence the behavior of council officers, local residents and businesses within the municipality to drive the shift to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
Provide incentives (for example rate reductions) for best practice developments such as streamlined planning processes, and support for retrofitting energy efficiency measures for existing buildings.
