The City of Adelaide Takes Real and Meaningful Action on Climate Change

The City of Adelaide partnered with Flow Power ( to meet its electricity needs from a mix of wind and solar power. Adelaide became the first council in South Australia to use 100 percent renewable electricity through a power purchase agreement that ensures the City’s operations.

Since 1 July 2020, everything run by the City has been powered by renewable electricity, which includes community buildings, electric vehicle chargers, street lighting, traffic lights, and barbecues in the parklands. The electricity in the contract is delivered by Clements Gap wind farm in mid-north South Australia and two new solar farms on the Eyre Peninsula (Streaky Bay) and South East (Coonalpyn) built by Flow Power. The switch to zero emissions sources is reducing emissions by over 11,000 tonnes or the equivalent of taking 3,500 cars off the road.
