Another Healesville CoRE Community Energy Project!

Healesville Community Renewable Energy were thrilled to receive an unexpected grant from Sustainability Victoria last year, in order to continue accelerating the transition to renewable energy in the town. Part of the grant is being used to provide energy efficiency improvements to a much loved local community building – Badger Creek Community Hall. These upgrades will improve the comfort level of the hall by replacing the heating and cooling system, insulating and draft-proofing the building, and providing curtains and fly screens on the windows to lower heat loss – this in turn will reduce the groups hefty energy bills and of course their emissions too.

BCCH president Kevin Mason was very pleased with the project, and writes: “At a time of rising energy bills, energy efficiency upgrades is a wonderful community minded project initiated by Healesville CoRE through Sustainability Victoria. The Badger Creek Committee of Management greatly appreciates and thanks Healesville CoRE in choosing the hall for one of its energy efficiency projects.

Maybe it was the grand old age of the hall that put out the challenge, whatever, the upgrade will be a very welcome and comfortable experience for hall users and the community in general, especially with the hall’s centenary coming up in February 2025.”
