The University of Newcastle has committed to 100 per cent renewable power across its Newcastle and Central Coast Campuses.
It’s the first University in the country to sign a seven year contract with Red Energy.
“It’s a really big step for our uni and will also significantly reduce our environmental footprints, so our carbon emissions, but also do it more cost effectively.” – Daan Schiebaan, University of Newcastle Environmental Manager.
Campuses will receive fully renewable electricity by 2020.
