What is a community energy hub?

Community energy is an approach to renewable energy that gives power back to communities. This can be through local ownership, or by ensuring benefits flow back to the community in some other way.

A community energy hub is a community or town working together to create and share electricity. Indigo Power customers can generate electricity and share it with their neighbours, and we’ll be building larger solar and battery projects to supply communities with top-up power. Every community energy hub remains connected to the Australian electricity network, so you’ve always got power when you need it.

How does energy sharing work?

If you’ve got solar, excess energy that is not being used is sent back into the community energy hub and is available for other customers to use. We run the calculations each evening so the next day we can show you how much energy was shared locally, shared by larger-scale generation and storage assets, and was supplied from outside the hub.
