History

The Community Power Agency was founded when two people, Nicky Ison and Jarra Hicks, decided to take positive action toward a clean energy future. After years of passionate and dedicated campaigning against a broken and polluting energy system, Jarra and Nicky turned their efforts towards finding a solution to the energy crisis and building a fairer and cleaner system for all. In 2010, they visited community energy projects of all shapes and sizes in the UK, Europe, North America and India and were inspired by the great things that local communities had achieved. This energised them to help make community energy a reality in Australia. In 2011 the Community Power Agency was formed. In 2015 it was incorporated as a notforprofit workers cooperative and has grown to a small but highimpact team. Now with over 2,000 supporters, the story of our success grows with us
