The Federal Coalition government's attacks on renewable energy have stalled investment and cost thousands of jobs. And communities who want to lead Australia's transition to a clean energy future with their own projects struggled to get momentum.
Victoria is the home of community energy in Australia. The successful Hepburn Wind farm, which started generating power in 2011, was the country's first community-owned project. Despite recent setbacks, there's an opportunity to supercharge the community energy sector in our state.
The Victorian Parliament has just announced an inquiry into community-owned renewable energy. And we're fired up to get a good outcome.
With your help, Yes 2 Renewables and allies such as the Coalition for Community Energy can engage in the inquiry and make sure that it recommends the policies needed to see dozens of community energy projects get off the ground. If you're keen to get involved, please fill out the form below:
