What CoRE has been doing!

This is just a short reminder of what Healesville CoRE has been doing for our community.

Healesville Community Renewable Energy is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers since 2017. Our vision is to accelerate the transition of Healesville to a Net Zero Carbon town – renewable and affordable.

$90,000 revolving fund.

In 2019, Healesville Community Renewable Energy (HCoRE) received a $90,000 Federal Government grant to install solar panels on three local not-for-profit groups. The Community Energy Revolving Fund builds community energy resilience and helps local organisations to cut power bills and reduce carbon emissions.

This grant is in it’s second generation. Helping more community savings.

$60,000 Improvement fund

The state government committed $60,000 to Healesville CoRE, so that we could continue to build on and expand our work in our community. To that end we have developed two plans. One to improve Badger Creek Hall’s sustainability and second to upgrade a community house on Don Rd. Both projects are on going stay tune for more information in the coming months.
