Join the Plico Movement
Community Energy Projects
By signing up to Plico Energy you’re not only helping protect our environment, you’re also providing a helpful hand to your local community.
A core vision of Plico Energy is ensuring the continued improvement of the community, both from a clean energy and sustainable financial model, which is why we have also introduced the Community Fund.
For every Redback system that is installed as part of the 2019 South West project, Starling Energy Group will donate $250 to a Community Fund.
This Community Fund will be held within each Not-for-Profit Project in each local town. The money generated within this fund is intended to be put towards local community projects that enhance and assist the local community.
To receive this funding, local projects need to align with the principles and ethics of Plico Energy and the guidelines created for the Community Fund. Each local NFP Project will have a committee of people from the different geographical regions of the area, who will have an ability to vote on what projects receive assistance from the Community Fund.
Utility Support Fund
The NFP Project for each local town will also have a Utility Support Fund.
The fund can assist residents who are experiencing a significant life event (such as unemployment or a major illness) and, as a result, cannot make their contract payments. The aim is to encourage the community to be supportive to its residents in times of crisis.
The NFP Project Committee will have the capacity to make payments on behalf of a participant from the Utility Support fund, to ensure they do not fall behind in contract payments. This money will need to be paid back to the Project in time, so other participants can also make use of this fund if need be.
The Utility Support Fund cannot be used unless participants meet certain criteria. It cannot be used for people who simply don’t pay their bills.
