Junee Community Power Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation. Our main objective is to save households in Junee Shire on rising energy costs.
We have formed a committee and have fortnightly meetings at the Junee Ex-Services Memorial Club. As this is a community power group the meetings are open for anyone to attend.
We are exploring different ways to save households on energy costs by conducting home energy audits. This can either be by a Junee community power member or you can conduct it with your family at home. (Home energy audit kits are available at the Junee Library for free to borrow.)
Household Solar PV (photo-voltaic) panels are a massive saver of electricity. We are looking at group discounted buying and installing of solar panels on houses in Junee, also working on ways to help low income earning households save on electricity by proposing an idea of funding half the cost which is paid out of the electricity savings over 5-7 years.
Junee Community Power will establish a community circular fund (perpetual fund) to help community bodies to install solar PV and conduct energy efficiency updates by supplying the upfront capital which is then repaid, interest free, out of the energy savings over 5-7 years. The community body will own the installation when paid for and the repaid capital is reused on the next project. The committee is currently assessing Cooinda Court and the Broadway Museum as potential first projects for this fund.
