Sustainability

As a major supplier of energy to the Australian national electricity market Delta Electricity's primary objective is to operate facilities for the efficient, safe and reliable production of energy for industry and the community.   However, we recognise the environmental impacts from using natural resources, including fossil fuels and water in power production and are focusing considerable investment into improving our sustainability.

Delta Electricity is reducing greenhouse emissions at Vales Point by up to 20,000 tonnes each year by co-firing quantities of renewable biomass fuels with coal.  Currently, the biomass fuel includes saw mill residues, a by-product of forestry operations, and construction and demolition waste such as timber pallets. 

Our aim is to continue to support the community with reliable power while demonstrating responsible environmental performance.
