Local businesses are being invited to register for a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

With businesses facing record volatility in energy costs, now is the time to embrace a renewable PPA to reduce pricing risk, lower costs and help meet sustainability targets.

The offer is designed to help businesses reduce their power prices, gain long-term energy price certainty and reduce emissions for a cleaner, greener world.

By harnessing the collective purchasing strength of local businesses, the PPA program intends to substantially decrease electricity expenses for the companies that participate.

A PPA is expected to be cheaper, more efficient, and less complex for local businesses than going it alone.

Council is supporting Business Green Energy (BGE) who has reached a deal with Iberdrola – one of the world’s global leaders in clean energy. 

Since putting a 100 percent Renewable PPA in place in 2021, Council has already made excellent savings on its own electricity usage with Iberdrola Australia, achieving its sustainability targets well ahead of time.

With businesses accounting for 37 percent of the Northern Beaches’ overall carbon footprint, and more than 70 percent of those emissions coming from electricity, the program has the potential to help significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions locally.
