The transition to renewable energy is underway and Council has committed to supporting the State Government in meeting or exceeding their renewable energy target of 25% by 2020. This means working closely with the community to use energy more efficiently and generate more from renewable sources.  

Our upcoming Power Up Surf Coast sessions will give you an insight into what Council is doing, what the community is doing and what you can do as an individual.
