Local Benefits

For YOUR COMMUNITY

Goorambat Solar Farms will bring a range of benefits to the Goorambat region.

Watch this video to see the benefits another Neoen project brought to communities in Wunghnu, Numurkah in regional Victoria.

Expected benefits for Victoria

In June 2020, Aurecon undertook an economic impact assessment for the Goorambat East project to determine the benefits it would deliver for Victoria and, in particular, the region of Hume.

We applied for a grant to install a wind turbine & solar panel array at the school. The purpose was for the students to understand the different streams of energy production. It was a very simple application process.”

ECONOMIC BENEFITS

We try not to fly in workers from everywhere to help us complete our renewable energy projects.

Instead, we hire local people who know the land and have the skills and enthusiasm to support us during construction.

Our core team become regulars at local cafes and pubs, and we love to work with local suppliers who provide their products and services to help us over the life of the project.

Hiring would begin before construction, which we hope to be in early 2020.
