CAP Grant / Report

CAP Grant

The Consumer Advocacy Panel awarded Council a $20k grant to undertake a study of energy across the Fleurieu Peninsula. The study undertaken by Wessex Consulting was completed in April 2012. Its findings indicate that traditional power on the Fleurieu will be increasingly expensive and unreliable.

This report will be shared with all other South Australian Councils.
