Sydney announces switch to 100% renewable energy, joining Melbourne and Adelaide

From the 1 July 2020 the City of Sydney will run entirely on renewable energy generated from wind and solar farms in regional NSW.

Around three-quarters of the power will be wind-generated, and the remaining quarter by solar.

The switch is projected to save the City up to half a million dollars a year over the next 10 years, and reduce CO2 emissions by around 20,000 tonnes a year —equivalent to the power consumption of more than 6000 households.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the new agreement will generate jobs, support communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and create new opportunities in drought-affected regional NSW.
