Essential Energy’s Community Support Program aims to give back to the local halls that make up the social fabric of regional, rural and remote NSW and provide a valuable venue for the provision of localised services for their surrounding areas. Delivering best value to our customers has to be balanced with providing direct, local support to the communities we service across regional, rural and remote NSW. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to partnering with the local communities where we live and work as we operate and maintain one of Australia’s largest electricity distribution networks.

Through the program, eligible halls will receive a $200 donation (GST exclusive) to put towards general maintenance costs for the hall.

There will be one application period per year which will be open for approximately six weeks.

Applications for Essential Energy’s 2017 Community Support Program open at 9am on Tuesday 1 August 2017 and close at 5pm on Friday 15 September 2017.
