North Norfolk District Council is delighted to announce it has struck a new energy contract, which is set to reduce the carbon emissions of some of its facilities by 85%. The switch is the latest effort in the Council’s ambition to become carbon neutral by 2030, alongside other schemes such as Electric Vehicle Chargepoint installation across the district, and solar panels along the main office building.

Vertas (a subsidiary of Suffolk County Council) undertook the procurement on NNDC’s behalf, with the award criteria based on pricing, renewable credentials, EDI billing (a form of electronic billing) and a single point contact for billing.

The contract was subsequently awarded to Haven Power, who are able to supply the Council with 94.5% green energy with REGO (Renewable Energy Guaranteed Origin) Certificates. The contract runs for a period of 2 years from April 2020.

Cllr Nigel Lloyd, NNDC’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, said “I am delighted that we have been able to secure a green energy supply at a competitive rate for our offices. NNDC have begun our journey to net carbon zero, we will continue to explore all avenues to reach that goal by 2030.”
