Community invited to find out more about Boorolong Wind Farm.
Written by Squadron Energy |
Leading renewable energy developer CWP Renewables is inviting the community to information sessions this month for its proposed Boorolong Wind Farm.
The project, located around 20km north-west of Armidale, is in the early stages of development and comprises wind turbines and battery storage to provide firm renewable energy generation.
CWP Renewables Project Manager Samuel Newman encouraged the community to drop in to one of the upcoming information sessions.
“We’re keen to speak with the community about our plans and to gather information to help shape the project during this early development phase,” Mr Newman said.
“The area we’ve been investigating is well suited to a wind farm as it has reliable levels of wind and is close to an existing transmission line.”
The proposed wind farm is located within the New England Renewable Energy Zone (REZ), which is expected to deliver up to $10.7 billion in private sector investment whilst supporting around 830 operational jobs and 1,250 construction jobs.
Drop-in information sessions are being held on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 September from 2pm to 7pm at The Tops Function Room, Armidale City Bowling Club, 92-96 Dumaresq Street, Armidale.
Community members are also invited to complete a survey to provide feedback on Boorolong Wind Farm which will help inform the design that will feed into a Scoping Report.
