Background
Anglesea's brown coal mine and power station ceased operation in August 2015. The local community is being consulted about future use of the land on which the former coal mine and power station are situated. Renewable energy generation and storage has been identified as a possible future land use. Repower Anglesea is a proposal to turn this possibility into a reality.
Alcoa of Australia

Alcoa currently owns and formerly operated Anglesea's coal mine and power station. To help facilitate its planned withdrawal from the site, Alcoa formed a Community Consultation Network that meets regularly, provides community updates in local papers and publishes relevant reports on its website. In June 2017, Alcoa released the Anglesea Mine Rehabilitation and Closure Plan for community feedback. For further details, click here to visit Alcoa's community engagment website.
State & Local Government

The Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) with the Surf Coast Shire Council are consulting with the community on the future of the Anglesea coal mine and power station site. Ideas for the future use of the site have been invited and will inform DELWP and Council as they prepare a draft land use plan to re-zone the site after Alcoa's withdrawl.

Anglesea Community Energy

Anglesea Community Energy (ACE) is a group of local volunteers who would like to see Anglesea run on 100% locally generated, grid connected, reliable and affordable renewable energy that generates additional benefits for the community. ACE proposed Repower Anglesea as part of DELWP's Anglesea Futures Community Conversation series and now seeks to turn the proposal into a reality. ACE is a part of Surf Coast Energy Group Inc.
