The Energy Innovation Co-op is a registered non-trading Co-op with around 350 shareholder members and a mission of "Working together towards a zero emissions community".

Via a Vic Govt "New Energy Jobs Fund" (round 2)grant in 2017, the Co-op's "Old Energy-New Energy" project (stages 1 & 2) is installing up to 100 kW solar panels and 25 kWhr batteries at the State Coal Mine in Wonthaggi, the first significant community owned renewable energy installation in the region. The installation will be owned by the Co-op, and the income generated will go towards the Co-op's Southern CORE (Community Owned Renewable Energy) Fund. This fund provides no interest loans to community groups wishing to put solar PV or energy efficiency measures onto the buildings they manage, to save on power bills and reduce emissions. The Fund's first no-interest loan went in Nov 2017 to Foster Pool Association, to allow them to complete solar water heating measures before the start of that Summer. The next funded project is now under negotiation. The Co-op also runs community information and other activities, a regular newsletter and a website. We are now registered for the Vic government's household energy efficiency scorecard program. Most of our members are within South Gippsland, Bass Coast and surrounds. In 2018 the Southern CORE Fund will be seeking to assist groups in the Latrobe Valley and beyond as well. Donations over $2 are tax deductible. PO Box 111 Inverloch Vic 3996, contact: info@eico-op.com.au or ph: 5657 3108
