ZEN Energy will provide electricity to 25 councils in NSW, with 19 of them opting for 100% renewable and 83% of the total electricity will be supplied from solar farms.
This project involves the supply of electricity to over 300 major council facilities, powering more than 210,000 streetlights and more than 3000 small sites managed by councils. The 25 participating councils collectively represent over 3 million people, which is almost 38% of NSW population.
The deal will commence in 2022 and run until 2026, with an option to extend to 2030.
This is a remarkable deal and a significant step to lead our communities into the zero-carbon world.
