Melbourne Renewable Energy Project
The Melbourne Renewable Energy Project marks the first time in Australia that a group of local governments, cultural institutions, universities and corporations have collectively purchased renewable energy from a newly built facility.
Members have committed to purchase 88GWh of electricity per year from the yet to be built Crowlands Wind Farm near Ararat.
The approach will enable cities, corporations and institutions to take an active role in securing renewable electricity supply, it provides price certainty and will be critical to partner organisations achieving their CO2 reduction targets.
