Did you know that Byron Shire Council has committed to being carbon neutral by 2025?
Council is committed to doing its part in the fight against climate change. In addition to declaring a Climate Emergency in 2019, Council has implemented a number of emissions reduction projects including installing more than 600kW of solar across its assets and entering a carbon neutral electricity contract.
As a result, Council’s net emissions have reduced by 9,830 tC02e since 2016.
Many more exciting projects are in the works, including a potential 1.5MW bioenergy plant and a potential 5MW solar farm at Dingo Lane.
