The first community energy project by a Queensland community energy group
Energetic Communities announced today their successful completion of their first project – an investor driven solar project on the roof of Food Connect. The project is closely based on the Repower Shoalhaven model, which we already know is highly replicable.
We look forward to more and more community energy projects coming out of Queensland, the sunshine state.
Leading ethical bank, Bank Australia, announced today their biggest ever round of grant funding, including a new category just for community energy projects. Five organisations will receive $25,000 from the Bank to develop their community energy projects.
Yes, that’s right – we’re one of the recipients. We’re using the funds to help Inner West Council in Sydney further develop their plans for creating a solar garden for those residents who are ‘locked out’ of owning their own rooftop solar system.
The project will determine the best solar gardens model to use for residents in the Inner West Council are and commence planning for the future implementation stage.
Our heartfelt congratulations to all the successful applicants. We look forward to seeing your community energy projects unfold and flourish with this generous support from Bank Australia.
We are off to a flying start this year in the world of Community Renewable Energy! As the sector continues to grow we have seen some exciting funding announcements made recently and Community Power Agency are energised to get out there and work with partners to ensure the most benefit is realised from these commitments, for both our communities and for the energy transition.
