About this Event

What is Community Energy?

The development of community energy projects is gaining significant momentum; in communities across Australia, people are seeking alternatives to conventional energy sources. Whether they aim to increase energy security, help address climate change, or seek to lower power bills, they are looking to community-scale renewable energy projects for solutions.

Community energy (CE) refers to projects where a community initiates, develops, operates and benefits from renewable energy. Community Energy is really about people power; its about communities coming together and building local renewable energy projects for the benefit of their community; its about them democratising energy, its about communities becoming involved in their own energy needs and ensuring affordable energy for everyone into the future.

South West Community Energy - Community Solar Project

The South West Community Energy project is the installing of a solar PV system on a privately owned building (host site) under a commercial agreement. The tenant/s of the host site will use the electricity generated by the solar system and remunerate the community group at an agreed rate.

Community Energy across Victoria

Existing community groups will be present from across Victoria and will provide a presentation on their experiences and stories from implementing community solar projects within their region.

Community Solar in the Great South Coast

Leadership Great South Coast’s (LGSC) Community Solar have developed a framework to support community groups (including groups with no prior knowledge of renewable energy) to implement solar photovoltaic (PV) projects across the Great South Coast.
