Green members of Marrickville Council want to see if it is possible to build a wind farm in the Sydney suburb of Tempe.
They say the farm could power local facilities like sports centres and water treatment plants.
Greens councillor Fiona Byrne says local councils have a responsibility to fight climate change.
“We can see that climate change is upon us, there’s really no more time to waste and we need to start investigating straightaway ways that we can reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and look for all possibilities of options for renewable energy,” she said.
