Community energy groups across Victoria are calling on our supporters to sign this petition for a Community Energy Target!

While there are dozens of community energy groups across the state there is a crucial policy gap stalling progress of mid-scale projects. Large scale renewables have the Victorian Renewable Energy Target, and household renewables have Solar Homes, but
mid-scale community generators have no ongoing support.

With a recent Victorian Inquiry recommending the State Government implement a Community Energy Target now’s the time to show your support for community energy by signing this petition.
