The group launching a new community energy retailer, allowing homes to generate and share renewable energy, is calling for help to choose the name of the organisation.
Project manager Ben McGowan said the five options to go out to a public vote attempt to evoke different aspects of the North East.
They are Indigo Power, referring to the indigenous flower which the Indigo Valley is named after; Peppermint Power, which signals both the eucalypt in the region and a fresh approach to energy; Indi Power, after the indigenous word for the Murray River and the electorate; Common Power, referring to the community power sharing; and Bogong Electricity, after Victoria’s highest mountain.
“The local community energy retailer needs a name and who better to choose it than the people of North East Victoria,” retailer Mr McGowan said.
“Partner groups of the community energy retailer project have helped us hone down five names.
“We are calling on everyone to visit the website and vote on a name. We will be a community owned and locally operated retailer, and we are giving our community a say right from the beginning.”
