Community energy projects are financed and owned by the community, who control, manage and operate the project. The community also share in the profits it generates.
CE4G has been set up to spearhead local community renewable energy projects in the Goulburn region of NSW, starting with a 1.2 MWp solar farm in Goulburn.
Announcing a terrific Spring project for all those interested in either upgrading their solar systems or starting from scratch and getting into solar for the first time - all at a great discount off the normal retail price.
CE4G have partnered with SolarCrowd for a NSW wide bulk buy of solar panels, batteries and meters that will cut the cost of systems and at the same time return money to the community through our Community Benefit Sharing scheme.
Dr John Hewson, academic, economist and well known political commentator launched the feasibility study and CE4G as an incorporated association in front of over 150 people who came to the event to learn more about the study.
The event started with a reminder from a group of young people that they will still be alive in 2050 and will be the generation that has to deal with any inaction on global warming.
