TAKE ACTION - Champion Community Power Hubs todayPlease join us and sign on to this letter calling for the state government to commit to baseline funding for the Community Power Hubs Program.The Victorian State Government has been a leader when it comes to community participation in our energy system. A key centrepiece of this agenda is the Community Power Hubs program that empowers local people to grow renewable energy, promote energy independence and build resilience. This program skilled up local organisations across Victoria, giving them the resources they needed to build trust and support real projects on the ground, but the 2022 state budget has left community energy groups out to dry, with no future baseline funding for the Community Power Hubs, which has put many community-led energy projects in free fall and left our state's energy transition up to big energy companies rather than community leadership.That's why we're calling on the Energy Minister, Lily D'Ambrosio to champion Community Power Hubs and make sure that the state government commits to this essential program.Sign on to the letter today at www.melbournefoe.org.au/communitypowerhubsWe'd like to thank Friends of the Earth and the Coalition for Community Energy who are leading this campaign. ...
