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.

Our vision

To have a viable renewable energy program operating by 2020 that is embraced in practice and financially by the Gloucester community.

Energise Gloucester

Projects & Updates

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.
