About the power project
EDL provides clean and reliable gas-fired power for the towns of Broome, Derby, Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek.
The project has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 25%, and created benefits for local communities including job opportunities, establishment of services and support industries in the region and economic growth from EDL’s local purchasing focus.
West Kimberley Community Fund
EDL established the $1 million fund in 2012 to create lasting value throughout the West Kimberley. Facilitated by the Shires of Broome, Derby/West Kimberley and Halls Creek, the fund supports not-for-profit initiatives aligned with the principles of social cohesion, inclusiveness, equal opportunity, community wellbeing and long-term community development.
