Randwick Greens Councillor Murray Matson thinks that a NSW Council seeking to emulate the UK’s Nottingham Council, which sells cheap electricity to residents, could seek status as a Local Renewable Energy Retailer from the Regional Development Australia Northern Inland (RDANI).
Councillor Matson said,
“There are various community groups setting themselves up as Local Renewable Energy Retailer, but I don’t know of any actual NSW Council that has tried to do it. But it might be possible for a Council that wants to directly help its community to get such a classification from RDANI. Alternatively I guess the Council could seek to be in a joint venture with a community group.”
