The City of Gosnells is pleased to join the Cities Power Partnership, acknowledging our ongoing commitment to addressing climate change.

Our achievements
As part of the Switch your thinking program, the City has committed to helping our residents live sustainably. This program is run with our neighbouring local governments to maximise our impact. To assist our community to access environmental products, we offer discounts on solar photovoltaic panels, battery storage, rainwater tanks and more through Rewards for Residents. The City also offers free energy efficiency tips and peak load warnings via SMS so our community can act together to shape our energy future. In 2017, the City was recognised for these efforts and won the National Energy Efficiency Award for Best Residential Project.

Our future
In 2018, the City looks forward to launching our Smart Cities and Suburbs program Switch your roof. Our future commitments include ongoing improvement in our corporate and community facilities and staying abreast of improvements in energy efficient design and retrofit. This will include installing more efficient appliances, lighting and renewable energy in a growing number of City facilities.
