25 NSW Councils Target Emissions In Huge Deal with ZEN Energy
The ZEN team is so proud to share this major piece of news! Together with the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC), we are delivering one of the largest renewable energy contracts for local governments anywhere in Australia.
Now, landmarks in the Bayside, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canada Bay, Canterbury-Bankstown, Fairfield, Georges River, Hornsby, Hunters Hill, Inner West, Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, Liverpool, Mosman, North Sydney, Parramatta, Port Stephens, Randwick, Ryde, Singleton, Sutherland, Tamworth, Waverley, Willoughby and Woollahra councils will be receiving electricity from ZEN with 19 of these councils opting for 100% renewable!
So that’s 214 gigawatt hours of electricity per year to over 300 major council facilities, 3,000 smaller sites and more than 210,000 streetlights. These councils serve over 3 million people, which is almost 38% of NSW population.
While 19 councils are using 100% renewable energy, 83% of the total electricity will be supplied from NSW solar farms.
