Geothermal energy is clean, reliable and renewable. It is derived from naturally occurring heat within hot rocks and water reservoirs below the earth's surface. This heat can be collected and converted to electricity.
The Victorian Government will help Victorian households cut their electricity bills through the Solar Homes package which will be delivered by the newly established Solar Victoria.
The Sustainability Fund is established under section 70 of the Environment Protection Act 1970 (EP Act) and receives money collected from Victorian landfill levies. Funds are allocated with the joint consent of the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change and Premier.
Sustainability Victoria is all about information, advice and support to tackle climate change and use our precious resources wisely. We want Victoria to be a thriving, beautiful, healthy place to live and work. We can help you take action in your home, your business, your school and your community to protect our lifestyle and ensure Victoria is a place we’re all proud to call home.
