Community Power Hub Ballarat had its official launch yesterday at Ballarat General Cemeteries in Doveton Street North. Why launch a community energy project at a cemetery?

CEO Ballarat Cemeteries Annie De Jong explains

“ The Ballarat General Cemeteries Trust, being a not for profit managed organisation is delighted to work with the CPH program to investigate how we can move to renewable energy sources and potentially become a model for regional cemeteries across the state.”

We consume significant electricity and fuel in our day to day operations running irrigation systems, our buildings and our plant and equipment. The Trust has a 20 plus year vision to create more sustainable methods of providing our essential services to our community.”

What a great project that would be!
