We support communities

Sponsorships and donations

We connect communities with renewable energy, through partnerships and new technology. 


Spotlight on Yackandandah's virtual power plant 

Our partnership with the Yackandandah community is helping them achieve their ambition of becoming 100% renewable by 2022.  

The community’s work to set up its Virtual Power Plant won the Community category in the Victorian Premier’s 2020 Sustainability Awards. To read about the award, visit Sustainability Victoria's website. The network of publicly owned buildings across the local area enables residents to generate, store and share electricity.

With 650kW of solar energy installed, the community has generated 3.9GWh of renewable energy.  

Using Mondo technology, the UbiTM Energy Management Platform, customers can manage and optimise their combined energy generation and consumption.  


Spotlight on our people 

We helped fundraise over $8,000 for Foodbank Victoria in 2021. This was then matched by our Executive Leadership Team, helping provide 32,200 Victorians with a healthy meal.

Targeted donations 

We support our communities through donations. This financial year (2020-21), we provided support to Goulburn Options. They are a not-for-profit community organisation in Northeast Victoria who provide a range of services for adults with a disability and their carers. Read about their work at Goulburn Options

In line with our focus on mental health and wellbeing initiatives during COVID-19, we also donated to Lifeline. This national charity provides Australians experiencing emotional distress with access to 24-hour crisis support.   


Supporting our future leaders 

We expanded our Graduate program in 2021, giving 19 graduates the opportunity to begin their professional journey with AusNet.
