2.   Resolves the following:

a)   Council commits to securing the maximum allocation from renewable electricity generation at the earliest possible opportunity when it is due to renew its energy supply contract from 1 July 2022 onwards.

b)   Expressing our support for the traditional owners and communities in the Northern Territory, who have expressed their strong opposition to Coal Seam Gas extraction and fracking due its threats to the climate, and to their lands, waters and rights.

c)   Requesting that Origin Energy cease all plans to conduct Coal Seam Gas extraction and fracking in the Northern Territory and elsewhere due to its impact on the climate, communities, environment and water, and commit to further investment in environmentally and socially sustainable renewable energy projects.

d)   Council considers funding towards suitable projects in the 2021/2022 financial year that will assist in tracking Council’s total renewable energy generation across all its facilities to accurately report what percentage of Council’s energy usage is sourced from local and contracted renewable energy generation.
