Palmerston North City Council is building awareness of sustainability in the community, while at the same time focusing on reducing the environmental impacts of its own operations.
Palmerston North City Council has a range of sustainability initiatives, including:
A 100KW solar farm on the roof of the civic administration building
Protecting 40 sq.km of regenerating native bush with an extensive network of predator traps;
Planting 150,000 trees through the 'green corridors' programme which connects the Tararua Range to the Manawatū river;
A growing fleet of hybrid electric vehicles and electric bicycles;
An ongoing programme to replace all existing street lights with LEDs, which is expected to reduce energy costs by 59%, and maintenance costs by 70%;
Supports homeowners looking to make their homes warmer, drier and more energy efficient with free, independent, in-home consultations from our 'Eco Design Advisor'.
