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.

Sponsorships

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.

Education

Our education program, Generation Hydro assists teachers to deliver energy related topics into the classroom.  The program includes a range of Australian curriculum aligned teachers guides and lesson plans, class talks and participation in career expo and pathway events.
