Community renewable energy has the community at its very heart, and is based on community partnership and/or ownership of energy supply and/or governance systems. Community energy is usually spoken about in terms of three “Ds” – decarbonising, decentralising and democratising. Totally Renewable Yackandandah is all about:
Decarbonising the local energy supply by encouraging the uptake of renewable energy
Decentralising our energy supply; and
Democratising energy systems by encouraging community participation, partnership, collaboration and, hopefully one day, ownership.
