100% Renewable Yarra

We are looking for medium to large businesses who want to switch to 100% renewable electricity, procured off-site. Follow the lead of big businesses like Carlton and United Breweries, Telstra, Woolworths, Aldi and Coles, and gain insights from Yarra Council's own experience of participating in a renewable energy Group PPA to support your transition.

Our aim is to establish a working group to help medium to large energy users (bills over $100,000 per annum) to work together through the challenges of procuring off-site renewable energy and develop a process to allow more efficient and affordable 100% renewable energy contracting.
