Member for Eastern Victoria, Harriet Shing today announced Gippsland Climate Change Network as the host organisation of one of the pilot Community Power Hubs in Latrobe Valley.

Earlier this year, the Victorian Government committed $900,000 for three, two-year pilot Community Power Hubs in Bendigo, Ballarat and the Latrobe Valley to support the development of community-owned renewable energy projects.

The community-owned and operated pilot Hub will drive economic and technological investment in the Latrobe Valley region, create jobs and help to reduce energy bills.

Gippsland Climate Change Network will collaborate with other community organisations, local government, business and industry to share knowledge, and identify existing or future opportunities for community energy projects in the region.

Latrobe Valley businesses and local government are already investing in renewable energy projects. For example, Latrobe City Council Baw Baw Shire, Wellington Shire Council, Gippsland Grammar, and manufacturers; Safetech and Fishers, have all installed big solar PV systems recently.

This initiative will contribute towards delivering the government’s renewable energy target of 25 per cent by 2020, reducing the state’s greenhouse gas emissions and creating new jobs in new sectors.

The state government has launched several initiatives to support community energy which are outlined in the Victorian Renewable Energy Roadmap - http://www.delwp.vic.gov.au/energy/renewable-energy/victorias-renewable-energy-roadmap

Quotes attributable to the Member for Eastern Victoria, Harriet Shing:

“Public interest in community energy projects has increased significantly over the years and we want to empower Gippslanders to have greater control over their energy as well as minimising their climate change impact.”

“With only 18 per cent of Victoria’s electricity currently coming from renewable sources, we want to grow capability and enable Gippsland to reap the economic benefits of community-owned energy.”
