New Voices for Power Project launches
Today, Jemena is pleased to announce our collaboration with industry and community to launch the Voices for Power ‘Train the Trainer’ Project; a first of its kind energy literacy program for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) customers across Greater Sydney.
The $200,000 pilot program is a partnership between Jemena, national energy retailers AGL and Origin Energy, and New South Wales electricity distributors Ausgrid and Endeavour Energy, and will be administered and delivered by Sydney Alliance, a civil society coalition.
Delivered in language, in culture and in community, the Voices for Power ‘Train the Trainer’ Project will equip local community leaders from seven different cultural and religious communities across Sydney to become energy experts, through co-delivering a series of informative energy education workshops.
Empowered by these learnings, leaders can then support others within their community to take control of their energy concerns, adopt simple energy safety practices, negotiate a better deal on their energy bills and more, with a specific focus on supporting those in more vulnerable circumstances.
