New England Renewable Energy Zone
The NSW Government has set out a plan to deliver a number of Renewable Energy Zones (REZ) within the State. A REZ involves the coordinated development of new grid infrastructure in energy rich areas to connect multiple renewable energy generators (such as solar and wind farms) in the same location.
The designation of a REZs is intended to result in the development of additional capacity for renewable electricity generation, producing low-cost power for NSW homeowners and business, driving down carbon emissions within the electricity generation sector, and importantly, driving up job growth and employment opportunities through enabling significant investment into the regions.
