DCAN is excited to announce its partnership with the newly funded Metro Community Power Hub (MCPH). As Victoria’s first metropolitan Community Power Hub, the MCPH is a forward-looking network of energy practitioners, climate action groups such as DCAN, social enterprises, councils, businesses and residents - all committed to accelerating Melbourne’s transition to renewable energy.
Funded by Sustainability Victoria on behalf of the Victorian Government, the Hub will work with metropolitan communities as a "one stop shop" to support, develop and deliver local, cost-effective renewable energy projects and solutions.
The Hub will focus on practical steps we can all take for a zero-carbon future, including:
- A solar PV program with vetted suppliers offering up to 20% discount on retail prices;
Advice and quotes on replacing gas appliances as we work towards the all-electric
- Energy literacy to help communities reduce their gas and electricity bills;
- Local events, workshops and information sessions on community energy initiatives;
Feasibility work on supporting and developing community proposals for flagship
projects, such as installing solar panels on your local sporting club rooms or scoping
for a community battery.
We’ll be covering Hub news regularly but if you want to learn more or get involved now, please visit https://www.yef.org.au/mcph/
