Totally Renewable Yackandandah Fund
In 2019 Totally Renewable Yackandandah (TRY) set up a non profit future fund as a sub fund of Into Our Hands Community Foundation.
The Fund supports TRY to raise funds from community and private donors to support their objectives and local community energy projects.
The fund is set up to specifically support the charitable causes relating to climate change and the protection and preservation of the environment through the exploration and piloting of alternative and renewable community energy models.
Importantly, TRY is a community development organisation that seeks to deliver on the aspirations of the local people of Yackandandah and their hope to achieve 100% renewable energy generation across the town. They are well on track to achieve this goal !
TRY is working to build Australia’s first ever community owned solar and battery project. This project will cement Yackandandah as national — and global — leaders on climate change and power the town with clean energy even when the sun isn’t shining.
We know the electricity sector is the main driver of climate pollution in Australia and TRY is committed to transitioning to renewable energy as quickly as possible. A community-scale battery would allow TRY to make deep cuts in emissions, offering an overnight clean energy solution.
