Diverse workplaces across regional Victoria

Connect50 is an exciting new initiative for employers across the Latrobe Valley, Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong to engage talented university and TAFE students with disability through paid internships. This is a unique opportunity to build disability confidence and capability across your business, tap into a talented pool of candidates with disability and realise the benefits of a more diverse workforce.

Australian Network on Disability (AND) is managing the project which is funded by the Victorian Government as part of its economic participation plan for people with disability 2018-2020. From beginning to end, AND will provide expertise and support to the employers and candidates to ensure positive, accessible, and inclusive experiences. The internships run for a minimum of 152 hours (4 weeks full time) during the Winter and Summer semester breaks. AND is looking for employers who are interested in expanding their talent pool by hosting an intern as part of this project.

Inspiration for Further Renewable Projects

Today a site visit to the State Coal Mine Wonthaggi demonstrated how their newly switched on solar panels/battery system were so beneficial. The cafe was busy, all sorts of stuff going on, and the panels were just resting in the sun and at 12.45 were producing 65kWh, and had already generated 235.55 kWh, with batteries fully charged. This month alone 4.84 MWh have been generated.

Lets use this as inspiration to discover more community projects, which together, community, business and goverment sectors are all welcome to attend the Renewable Energy Roadmap workshops. Starting this Friday.

Old Energy – New Energy Officially Switched On!

The Energy Innovation Co-Operative’s “Old Energy-New Energy” project (stage 2) situated at the State Coal Mine Wonthaggi has been officially launched by Victorian Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio. Local Bass MP Jordan Crugnale, Monash candidate Jessica O’Donnell, Bass Coast Deputy Mayor Cr Bruce Kent, South Gippsland Mayor Cr Don Hill & many councillors, Carol Blair from Bass Coast Community Foundation, plus Parks Vic and DELWP reps and lots of our Friends and supporters helped!

The Victorian government’s New Energy Jobs Fund grant enabled the Energy Innovation Co-op to install 91 kW of solar panels and 41 kWh battery storage.

The system was officially switched on, on the 3rd of May 2019.

The system will produce 127 MW clean power per annum. That’s an offset of 127 tonnes of CO2 annually, equivalent to taking 37 petrol cars off the road. It is more than the current annual consumption at the site (112MW.)

Income provided to Energy Innovation Co-op by the sale of electricity to Parks Victoria, will contribute towards the Southern CORE Fund. (Stage 1 of the broader project)

We will keep you updated!
