Community Investment Program

As a leading renewable energy developer, Pacific Hydro is committed to supporting the communities that host our clean energy projects with positive and lasting social, environmental and economic benefits.

Our Community Investment Program is the key part of Pacific Hydro’s community investment and support strategy. An Australian wind industry first, the Program delivers a portion of revenue back into our local communities each year.

Since its launch, the Program has provided more than $4.8 million to over 980 local projects across regional Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Queensland.
