Upper Yarra Community Enterprise

We’re stoked to be able to support the Upper Yarra Community Enterprise (UYCE) Warburton mini-hydro project and bring the community a great deal on electricity.

Tell me more about this great deal on electricity

Powershop customers can access great discounts off both their usage and daily supply charge if you pay your bill online and on time. Powershop’s online account and mobile app also make payment a quick and easy process; simply log in and pay using your credit card, bank details or BPAY.

Plus if you switch via the UYCE campaign you also get a $100 account credit once your switch to Powershop is complete.

How is Powershop supporting the UYCE Warburton mini-hydro scheme?

At Powershop we love renewable energy. We are owned by Meridian Energy, Australasia’s largest 100% renewable energy generator, who own and operate two wind farms right here in Australia, as well as a bunch of wind farms and hydro dams in New Zealand.

We see community energy playing a big role in our transition to a cleaner energy future. We have an established partnership with Hepburn Wind, Australia’s first community owned wind farm and launched our Your Community Energy initiative in late 2016, which continues to raise money for small-scale renewable energy projects.

For the last six months Powershop have been working behind the scenes with UYCE, lending our Project Manager, Peter, to assist with the project in both overall delivery and in achieving an efficient and cost effective connection arrangement. Moving forward we also hope to work with the UYCE to purchase the electricity produced by the mini-hydro scheme.
