Lane Cove Partnership Action Pledge
Our power partners are commited to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
Encourage local businesses and residents to take up solar PV, battery storage and solar hot water heating. Lane Cove’s free online service, the Solar Mapping Tool help residents and businesses to estimate the potential for solar electricity generation on their roof.
Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget – roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality. Lane Cove Council are embarking on a three year project to replace inefficient street lights on residential roads with LED lights.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centre’s, sporting grounds, and council offices.
Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
