The Draft Weddin Shire Council REAP builds on past and continuing work by Council to improve energy efficiency and implement renewables, and puts a framework in place around future actions.

The Draft REAP comprises of the following three (3) main elements which are organised into short, medium and long term plans: -

  1. Onsite energy efficiency and renewable energy;
  2. Renewable electricity purchasing; and
  3. Sustainable transport energy.

The draft REAP is currently on display for comment and can be viewed on Council's Public Exhibition webpage or alternatively at Council’s Administration Building.

Written submissions are invited from the public and will be received up until 5:00pm on Friday 23 July 2021.
