Artarmon dominates BBP participation

Almost half Willoughby City Council businesses participating in the Better Business Partnership, are from Artarmon. According to BBP operators, more than 25 of the WCC government area's 57 BBP participants are located in the Artarmon village shopping precinct and shop fronts are quickly filling up with BBP stickers recognising their sustainable actions.

BBP, a sustainable north shore business project has had considerable success to date, working with Artarmon businesses to incorporate efficient technology with a good return on investment. One such business is Northside Flowers which is anticipating savings of up to 57% after installing more energy efficient lighting. Artarmon Fruit Market is estimating savings of up to 25%. The shop has installed insulating covers on refrigeration units, anti-static treatments on air compressors and air handling units and more energy efficient lighting.

In the WCC BBP area, 35 businesses have undergone a professional energy assessment under the energy efficiency for small business program. Of these, six businesses have already implemented energy saving technologies with the potential to save an average $1,000 a year for each business. The average payback period is 1.7 years and the actions represent a saving of 45 tonnes of CO2-e emissions - equivalent to about 10 cars off the road for a year.
