Centralised energy projects like our national electricity grid are large by nature, require large amounts of capital, incur large ongoing costs which are borne by customers and generally can only be developed by large utilities or corporations. Alternately, a community energy system supplies local energy requirements from locally situated renewable energy or high efficiency co-generation sources and is connected to consumers by infrastructure which complements or replaces the traditional power grid.

CENREC is looking to assist in the development of community energy systems. The first opportunity we are pursuing is the purchase of a wind turbine in the proposed Flyers Creek Wind Farm.
