Business Sustainable Opportunities

Supporting our businesses to become more sustainable

City of Parramatta provides a range of support to local businesses to become more sustainable:



Save Power Kits for loan

(Back to top)

The Save Power Kits includes power monitoring equipment to help you identify where you are using power and where you can be saving power (and reducing your greenhouse gas emissions).

Kit types

There are two types of kit you can borrow:

The Save Power kit contains range of practical tools including a power monitor to work out how much power your appliances are using, an infrared thermometer to check for drafts and a thermometer to test heating and cooling as well as a stopwatch and compass

The Power Mate kit has a single energy meter to measure how much energy your appliances use. It can also tell you how much your electricity costs for each appliance. Even when an appliance is on standby it can draw power, adding extra costs to bills unnecessarily.

Kit locations

Kits are available to adult library members for 1 week and must be returned in person.
