Minutes:

The Executive Members considered a proposal to adjust the electricity contract to the Npower green energy tariff commencing 1 April 2020. The Head of Property Design and Facilities Management was in attendance to present the report. He explained that the corporate electricity contract with Npower commenced on 1 April 2019 for 4 years and within this contract was the option to adjust to a green electricity tariff. The impact of this was extra annual expenditure of circa £7,000 split down into CYC buildings, York Explore, Schools, and Street Lighting as shown in paragraph 12 of the report. He added that the consumption figures were based on 2018/9 data and that the change to the green energy tariff overall provided benefit to carbon neutrality.

 

The Executive Members thanked officers for their work on the paper and noted that the council was continuing to look at different areas for the delivery of sustainability in an affordable way. They further asked that in regard to commissioning work for residential and adult social care, that sustainability was placed on the frameworks for them.
