Victorian State Budget 2023/24

Powering our regions

Regional Victorians know that renewable energy means more jobs, and lower power bills.

The neighbourhood batteries we install across regional Victoria will store cheaper electricity during the day and feed it back into the grid at night – slashing power bills. We'll work with community organisations, local councils and distribution companies to identify the best locations for them.

Workers across regional Victoria remember the SEC, and the good local jobs it created. As we work to bring back the SEC, we'll make sure regional Victoria plays an integral role in our clean energy future.

We'll provide $50 million to establish a TAFE Clean Energy Fund, through the $170 million Building Better TAFE Fund, supporting Gippsland TAFE, South West TAFE and Federation TAFE with a range of initiatives to train Victorians for the energy jobs of the future.
