The Victorian Government has announced it will provide $110,00 funding over a two year period to establishment three pilot Community Power Hubs in Ballarat, Bendigo and the Latrobe Valley.

The Community Power Hubs will assist the community in accessing the skills and expertise required to develop and deliver community-based renewable energy projects.

The Community Power Hubs will be hosted by a local not-for-profit or social enterprise organisation that works to co-ordinate and facilitate the development and expansion of community energy in each geographic area while helping to build capacity and skills.

See the Sustainability Victoria website for more detail and read this article by Nicky Ison for further insights into these Hubs.
