Event description

Description

In partnership with Bargara Brewery, Energetic Communities is developing Bundaberg’s first Community Renewable Energy Project. Working with the Community Power Agency we are holding an introductory workshop on Community Owned Renewable Energy on Friday, December 8th 2017 (at The Generator), followed by a second workshop on the Saturday (at Bargara Brewery) to develop a Bundaberg community solar (40kW) project on Bargara Brewery.

Community Owned Renewable Energy (CORE) is where the community raises funds to finance a renewable energy installation, whether it’s solar, wind, biodiesel or any other renewable energy resource. The community gets the economic benefits!

Together we can take control of our energy systems. We can decide on, build, operate and own our own electricity assets that power our homes, businesses and towns. Thousands of communities around the world are doing this right now.

This forum will be an opportunity to discuss what we can do right now, right here in Bundaberg. Energetic Communities and the Community Power Agency will cover.

  • Types of community energy projects
  • Funding models and legal structures
  • Benefits of community energy
  • Stop wasting money to power your charity or business
  • Community Engagement
  • Existing support networks
  • Case studies of successful projects – join dozens of Australian communities
  • Other potential sites in and around Bundaberg

While the workshop is free, we asking for a gold coin donation to cover the costs of hiring the space at The Generator.

(We're running a second workshop on the Saturday, at Bargara Brewery itself, including a brewery tour, to begin the process of establishing community solar on the roof of the brewery. This workshop will be for those interested in developing and being a part of the project - Bundaberg's first community solar).
