As prices continue to rise and the household decisions about energy become more and more complex, energy has become a top-of-mind issue for many Victorians. To support clients and members, workers in the community sector - like emergency relief volunteers, settlement workers and financial counsellors - need to understand energy and stay up-to-date with the changes that are affecting their communities.
That's why the Consumer Utilities Advocacy Centre, with funding from the Victorian Government, has created EnergyInfoHub. Just like the name says, the website is a hub for energy information, tools and funding that Victorian community organisations can use to support their clients and communities. We've spent the past few months working hard on the site, and now we're thrilled to have it up and running.
EnergyInfoHub is linked to the Department of State Development, Business and Innovation's Energy Information Fund, which will support community organisations to develop and deliver energy information to consumers. As the Fund gears up, more and more information and resources will be added to the site - so check back get the most up-to-date information. We're also on Twitter and Facebook, so follow or like us to be kept in the loop.
In the meantime, have a browse around the site, and if you have any feedback or suggestions on EnergyInfoHub, we'd love to hear them!
