City of Wagga Wagga
Is a Power Partner
During my time as a Councillor, I have been a strong advocate for reducing our energy usage and looking to greener options at our Council facilities. I am excited for Wagga Wagga to join the Cities Power Partnership and look forward to the opportunities, information and other advantages that are on offer as part of the program.
Partnership Action Pledge
Our power partners are committed to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centres, sporting grounds, and council offices.
Public lighting can use a large proportion of a city’s energy budget – roll out energy efficient lighting (particularly street lighting) across the municipality.
Provide fast-charging infrastructure throughout the city at key locations for electric vehicles.
Ensure Council fleet purchases meet strict greenhouse gas emissions requirements and support the uptake of electric vehicles.
Implement an education and behaviour change program to influence the behaviour of council officers, local residents and businesses within the municipality to drive the shift to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
