What is the Metro Community Power Hub?

The MCPH is the first of its kind in metropolitan Melbourne.

We’re a group of like-minded energy practitioners, climate action groups and passionate citizens – all coming together in the Hub to share practical climate solutions with the wider community.

As one of seven community power hubs statewide funded by the Victorian Government through Sustainability Victoria, we’re working hard to build Melbourne residents’ awareness of, and involvement in, community renewable energy projects.

The Yarra Energy Foundation is delighted to be the lead agency for this landmark project.




Where are we heading?

We have big plans.

The MCPH is committed to equipping local communities with the expertise and know-how they need to drive down emissions in their own neighbourhoods.

We believe in the power of people to supercharge our transition to a zero carbon future.

Whether it’s putting more solar on rooftops, helping people reduce their energy bills or facilitating flagship projects which transform our suburbs, we’re passionate about accelerating towards an exciting energy future which benefits everyone.

We’re all about tangible outcomes and creating positive change across our city.

Learn about our Solar Program, which could save you up to 20% off retail prices here.

Want to join the all-electric home movement? We show you how.

Greater energy literacy is a win for our communities and our environment – learn here how to get a grip on energy use.



Our Story

Sustainability Victoria funding for the Metro Community Power Hub was announced by the Victorian Government in July 2021 for a 12-month period.

This followed the success of three pilot Community Power Hubs in regional Victoria, which were launched in 2017 and hosted by local not-for-profit organisations.

With a focus on solar PV, households transitioning away from gas, and energy bill literacy, the MCPH provides advice and practical help on clean energy solutions we can all embrace.

We’re also working with stakeholders to develop flagship projects that represent our shared dedication to rapid decarbonisation of the energy system.

Leading the Hub is the not-for-profit Yarra Energy Foundation, which brings extensive professional expertise, a strong track record in helping households embrace renewable energy, and its reputation for providing trusted and independent advice.

Who are we?

At the heart of the MCPH are partnerships between local climate groups and their communities.

The Hub brings together the skills and vision of the following community climate action groups:

We welcome partnerships with climate groups from across metro Melbourne, councils, sustainably-focused businesses and community organisations.
