The way we generate energy is changing.
While there is huge potential for community renewables in Australia, there is also a range of barriers that make it challenging for these projects to be achieved.
The Latrobe Valley has a long history of energy generation. The Latrobe Valley Community Power Hub (LVCPH) is a way for the surrounding communities to take control of their energy needs with solutions that uniquely benefit them, now and into the future.
This means power that is generated locally, used locally and savings that are kept locally, with projects that are characterised by local ownership, participation and benefit sharing.
The LVCPH is working with communities and local organisations to identify and test the feasibility of community renewable energy projects.
