The partnership between Totally Renewable Yackandandah and Mondo Energy has received another award, this time honoured by the Clean Energy Council.
The project received the award on Tuesday night for community engagement.
TRY has set up some of the first commercially operating micro-grids in the country and a community energy company to facilitate energy sharing between residents in the mini-grid.

Chair Matthew Grogan said the award demonstrated that communities were leading the way on the energy transition.
"Yackandandah is a glimpse into what the future energy grid will look like," he said.
"Rather than being passive consumers of energy, households are able to monitor, generate and share solar energy.
"It has been quite a journey since we decided in 2014 to move to 100 per cent renewable energy.
"Now more than 55 per cent of households have solar panels."
