Coca-Cola to turn green

WA’S first independent electricity retailer has taken a major step for the newly deregulated power industry.

WA Consolidated Power has signed an agreement with Coca-Cola Amatil to provide it with renewable energy.

The ‘green power’ deal is estimated to be worth about $750,000 annually.

WACP will supply the Coca-Cola Amatil plant in Kewdale with power generated from land fill gas emissions and chicken litter.

WACP CEO Charlie Abner said the deal would help to reduce the State’s greenhouse emissions and carbon dioxide levels.

He said he hoped it would set an example for the use of renewable energy in WA.

Coca-Cola Amatil operations manager David Sharpe said the deal was in line with the company’s environment policy and would assist it to meet commitments under the Australian Greenhouse Challenge.

Supply to Coca-Cola Amatil i expected to begin in June.
