the opportunity
The Opportunity
  • To set a precedent for effective private sector partnerships,
  • To maximise the local economic development potential from an emerging resource sector,
  • To create value in areas that have not had resource booms, or have dwindling natural resource,
  • To make energy a net gain rather than a net drain on local resources.
community based projects
Community Based Projects

Include the following dimensions:

  • The community is involved throughout project development,
  • The community is fully informed about all aspects of the project,
  • The community has some degree of ownership, and therefore influence over the direction of the project, and,
  • Derives a financial benefit over the lifetime of the wind project,
  • Transparently and accountably manages their revenues for local social and economic development.
community value
Community Value

Community value is created through:

  • ‘Co-developing’ projects with Just Energy,
  • Being land owners, users or occupiers,
  • Being a key influencer in project decision making,
  • Developing local social backing and understanding for the project,
  • Building the political profile for the project,
  • Creating ‘CSR value’ for project partners.
project structures
Project Structures

We seek to achieve:

  • A mix of fixed income (lease / revenue share) and equity,
  • An equity share for the community to include:
    • A ‘free’ carry – developers share + recognition of inherent community value,
    • A financed portion – shareholder loans etc,
  • Typically structured via a community trust or similar.

Community Benefits
  • Projects provide a meaningful annual income for the community,
  • In a typical project we would target to include a 10% ‘free’ carry and a further 15% financed share,
  • Long term management training and skills development to assist in the process of investing community revenues,
  • Other benefits include (some) jobs and land rental income.
