Environment improvement award: building resilience

Solar Farm

Today we profile the second joint winner of BlueScope's 2019 Environment Improvement Award

Australian Steel Products - Solar Farm Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) 

In July 2018, BlueScope signed a solar energy Power Purchasing Agreement equivalent to 20 per cent of our total Australian electricity purchases.  Through this investment we are building resilience against fluctuating energy prices and contributing to decarbonisation of the electricity grid by reducing annual greenhouse gas emissions in the order of 300,000 tonnes of CO2-e each year – comparable to taking 90,000 cars off the road, or supplying power to 60,000 homes. The jobs created by the project and the increased demand for local goods and services is a boost for the local community.
