Council buildings - renewable energy tariff
Question weight


Criteria met if the council has a green tariff that is 100% renewable or if the council creates its own energy equivalent to 20% of more of its energy consumption through energy from waste.

Additional points awarded if the council has a green tariff with Green Energy UK plc, Good Energy Limited or Ecotricity, or if the council creates its own renewable energy equivalent to 20% or its energy consumption. This could be through on-site energy generation, or if the council has built or bought a solar/wind farm elsewhere.


This includes all energy that the council is directly responsible for, in council offices and any other buildings leased and managed by the council where the council pays the energy tariff.
This includes all electricity used in these buildings (not gas).
This does not include homes owned or managed by the council.
