In the next few weeks the NSW Climate Fund Plan will go to the NSW Cabinet. This document will set out how the Government intends to spend the $1.3 billion set aside for the State’s response to climate change. It is essential community energy forms a major part of this response. We’re calling on the NSW Government to commit to funding the Smart Energy Community Program.*

The proposed Smart Energy Communities Program will create 10 Regional Energy Hubs across NSW to provide the coordination, expertise and funding needed to implement clean energy initiatives that benefit locked out energy consumers. These hubs, combined with a Community Energy Innovation Grant Fund and a Smart Energy Communities Network, would provide the framework for a rapid expansion of community power in NSW.

We’ve already had a significant win this year in Victoria with the creation of three pilot Community Power Hubs in Ballarat, Bendigo and the Latrobe Valley. We can make sure NSW is next but we need your help ASAP. We know there are members of the NSW Cabinet who are enthusiastic supporters of community energy. Now is the time to make sure they take this support to Cabinet.

Will you get in touch with key decision makers in the NSW Cabinet to make sure we get the best deal possible for community power?
