Nambucca Shire Action Pledge Coming Soon!

In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:

Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.

Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget - roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality.

Set minimum energy efficiency benchmarks for all planning applications.

Electrify public transport systems (for example buses operated by council) and fleet vehicles and power these by 100% renewable energy.

Facilitate large energy users collectively tendering and purchasing renewable energy at a low cost.

Set minimum renewable energy benchmarks for new developments, for example Denman Prospect, ACT requires every new house to install a minimum solar PV system.

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.

Get 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.

Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.

Set up meetings and attend events, such as the Community Energy Congress or Cities Power Partnership Summit, where like-minded cities can address common concerns and learn from others’ experience.
