Communities

The Regional Clean Energy Program

The Regional Clean Energy Program (RCEP) creates opportunities for communities throughout New South Wales to fully participate in local renewable energy initiatives.

Working closely with industry, local governments and other stakeholders, the program ensures these communities receive the necessary information and resources to understand and evaluate renewable energy options for their long-term social, economic and environmental benefit.

Aside from promoting the technology and advantages of wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, wave, tide and other clean-energy sources, the program provides funding to develop community-based projects.

To obtain advice about support and opportunities for your community through RCEP, contact your region’s dedicated renewable energy precinct (click on each to see local government areas):
