Expertise that enables

At the Community Power Agency, we believe that local, people-powered clean energy projects will bring lasting benefits to communities across Australia.

We care about achieving a transition to clean energy that benefits everyone, regardless of where you live, or what you earn.

Together we are powerful – and now is the time to act on climate change.

We are dedicated to supporting communities to take the power back and develop and deliver their own clean energy projects. Let’s work together.
