Tasmanians are our owners, our most important customers, and the very people we were created to serve. For more than a century, they’ve relied on our hydropower to grow the economy and support communities.

Community grant program

In February 2017, we launched our annual Community Grant Program, which offers support of up to $5000 for not-for-profit projects that make a difference in Tasmanian communities.


While generating clean renewable electricity is Hydro Tasmania’s main responsibility, we also take pride in supporting Tasmanians and local communities. We sponsor community events that attract visitors to Tasmania's beautiful places, inspire pride, support Tasmanians, and showcase the talent and diversity of our island.

Community partnerships

We help community organisations make a genuine difference for Tasmanians in need, and support programs that enrich our community. We have partnerships with about 15 community organisations or programs – including the Red Cross, Colony 47, the Smith Family, Hobart City Mission and the Tasmanian Migrant Resource Centre.

Employee volunteering

Our employee volunteering program supports community organisations by sharing our people's time, skills and knowledge. About a quarter of our people (well over 250 employees) volunteer in their community through our award-winning volunteer program.



We are currently developing a range of resources including lesson plans, school incursions and power station visits for Tasmanian primary and high schools.

The program will commence in Term 2 this year to assist students to understand our renewable energy, the benefits of studying STEM subjects and the subsequent career opportunities.
