We DID it!

Energise Gloucester has received a grant of $460,000 from the NSW Regional Community Energy Fund (RCEF) being almost half the cost of building the Solar Farm.

Solar Farm update

Energise Gloucester (EG) is making good progress with our Community Solar Farm and on track to commence construction later this year.

Energise Gloucester

Empowering the community to develop and run its own locally controlled, environmentally responsible, and financially successful renewable energy programs.

Projects & Updates

Energise Gloucester needs the services of a Sponsorship Manager.  

We are seeking a volunteer with experience in sponsorship to help us develop the policy and procedures, and then to negotiate with potential providers. 

Energise Gloucester (EG) is working with Komo Energy to develop the Gloucester Community Solar Farm. EG and Komo Energy are committed to giving local businesses, contractors and suppliers an opportunity to deliver or participate in the delivery of the Gloucester Community Solar Farm.

Community Energy involves the community in initiating, developing, operating, and owning systems that generate renewable energy to be used for the benefit of the whole community. Community energy projects have an emphasis on local engagement, local leadership and control with the local community benefiting collectively from the outcomes.

Energise Gloucester gives you the opportunity to invest in our solar future. Despite having taken the decision to stop face-to-face meetings both among ourselves and with our supporters, we are continuing to make progress on the development of Gloucester’s local solar farm.

Having trouble understanding your power bills? Want to learn about how to save energy and/or reduce the money you spend on it? Our people are now trained to help you – so our Home Energy program is for you.

In 2017 we completed our first project, installing solar panels on the roof of our Bucketts Way Neighbourhood Group’s building.  It has proved a great success, saving money for the Neighbourhood Centre that is now being used for programs that help those in the community in need of assistance.
