Community Choices Program

People playing sport

Essential Energy’s Community Choices program provides an opportunity for customers to nominate and vote for eligible community groups, community halls, not-for-profit and registered charities in our network area that could benefit from a funding boost. In 2022, eligible groups across our network received a share of $245,00 with funding awarded based on community voting and shared across 20 zones.

We are excited to announce our Community Choices Champions for 2022

This year we received over 300 nominations and more than 113,000 votes were cast during the voting period. Thank you to everyone who got involved to show support for the local causes they thought could do with a little boost.
