Actions One and Five of our Climate Emergency Response Plan states the Shire will Lead in the Climate Emergency and Mobilise and Strengthen Community Action.
Delivering on this commitment, the Shire funded two workshops with the community hosted by Community Power Agency (CPA) in 2021. CPA is one of Australia’s leading organisations supporting the development of community and local energy initiatives.
The workshops were designed to improve our community’s energy literacy, provide relevant advice and support the establishment of a local community renewable energy movement
The Opportunities for Community Energy in MPSC document is an outcome of these CPA guided community workshops and provides Council and the community with a clear guide on renewable energy opportunities that are both feasible and desirable in the Mornington Peninsula context.
