Council joins Cities Power Partnership

Mitchell Shire Council has joined 165 other councils from across the country, representing almost 65 percent of the Australian population, and become a member of the Cities Power Partnership (CPP).

The CPP provides councils with a great opportunity to share knowledge and work together to accelerate meaningful action on climate change.

When councils become a member of the CPP they must commit to five key partnership pledges and report on their progress annually.

The five pledges selected for Mitchell include:

Renewable Energy

  • Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings.

Renewable Energy

  • Power council operations by renewable energy and set targets to increase the level of renewable power for council operations over time.

Energy Efficiency

  • Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.

Work Together & Influence

  • Set up meetings and attend events to work with other cities on tackling climate change

Work Together & Influence

  • Support the local community to develop capacity and skills to tackle climate change
