Neighbourhood Battery Initiative

Neighbourhood Battery Initiative

The Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance (CVGA) has been funded to plan community batteries across the Hepburn Shire as part of State Governments’ Neighbourhood Battery Initiative.

The program, called ‘Community Sparks’ will assess the feasibility of five community battery sites in the Hepburn Shire, work on a decision-making tool for regional communities and will also explore a single potential battery site for six other local governments in the region.

Our Shire makes an ideal candidate for community batteries because of our high solar penetration and work to reach zero-net emissions by 2030. Two Hepburn Z-NET partners, Hepburn Wind and the Hepburn Shire Council, will be working with the community and CVGA to deliver this program.
