Eastern Climate Action Melbourne
Safe Climate Now
A little about us
.Eastern Climate Action Melbourne (ECAM) is a community group of like-minded people who are passionate about restoring our world to good health and have a planet where the most dangerous impacts of climate change have been avoided. We are located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, predominantly in the Cities of Whitehorse and Maroondah. We seek to increase community awareness of what each of us can do in our own homes and businesses and to advocate for strong government action to reduce carbon emissions and create a safe climate now

We are rebuilding our website to provide practical information and resources to help people living and working in the eastern suburbs to make their own personal energy transition to support a healthier, more liveable climate. This will include themes on our own homes, our local communities, and our abilities to help mobilise green finance to implement the technologies we have today to help today.
Part of that practical action is the heat pump hot water bulk buy from the Yarra Valley Community Power Hub that brings together six community climate action organisations around the eastern suburbs of Melbourne together to build action on renewable energy projects for their communities.
After space heating, hot water heating is one of the greatest contributors to the overall energy usage of a household. Heating water with electric elements or gas burners is an energy inefficient and hence costly process. Like reverse cycle air conditioning for space heating, heat pump hot water heating is an energy efficient, and so cheaper, way of heating water for your home.
With government rebates available, households now have an opportunity to purchase an energy efficient hot water system at an upfront price that’s competitive with traditional systems. That means you’ll have low upfront costs, and immediate cost savings.
The YV-CPH has partnered with Reclaim Energy to create the opportunity for out communities to purchase a CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System, securing cost savings, reducing climate pollution, and moving towards a resilient community.
Find out more about the Reclaim Energy, their Heat Pump Systems and more at our bulk buy online launch on Wednesday the 10th of November, 7.30pm. Express interest in a heat pump hot water system here.
