Green community housing is possible. Here’s proof.
CHIA Vic, in collaboration with BOOMPower, assisted seven community housing organisations to access a $2.7M program of energy efficiency and solar upgrades from the Victorian Property Fund in 2018/19.
The results, as outlined here, were impressive and have built the capacity of our sector as leaders in energy efficiency.
Community housing organisations provide homes for people on low to moderately low incomes who are disproportionately impacted by rising energy prices and climate change. We don’t want our renters to have to choose between keeping the heater on in winter or buying food.
