Energise Otaki: is the name chosen by the Otaki community to express the goal of becoming a net producer of clean energy and to act as a focal point for community action.
Helping Ourselves to A Smart Future: is the Energise Otaki by-line. Change will be achieved through community action, projects large and small, and alliances with key partners.
Individual and collective action, home, street, business, neighbourhood and town based energy conservation and clean energy production projects are at the heart of the Otaki community vision.
Key supporters are the Otaki Clean Technology Centre and clean technology businesses who provide exciting ideas and practical support to community projects. The Otaki Community Board has sponsored the vision from its beginnings. Kapiti Coast District Council provides support via its clean technology initiatives and its energy and climate change programmes.
Otaki College has been chosen as one of the major focus partner for actions over the last years.
A Reference Group meets to develop ideas and projects.
