Is a Power Partner
Partnership Action Pledge
Our power partners are committed to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
Install renewable energy solar (solar PV and battery storage) on Council buildings, for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreational centres, sporting grounds and Council offices
Council operations buy 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 (currently at 20% GreenPower)
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all Council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures
Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles
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)
