November 2023 Update

Following ongoing consultation with the community throughout 2023, RES hosted information sessions in November to provide detailed information about project design and to provide further information regarding potential impacts throughout the construction and operation phases of the Project. By doing this, RES can ensure that feedback from the local community and project neighbours is received and considered in advance of the planned development application submission in November/December 2023.

July 2023 Update

In early July, community drop in sessions were held at Ironpot and Kumbia Halls to showcase the revised design of the Tarong West Wind Farm. The sessions were well attended, with neighbour and broader community feedback helping to identify areas of interest or concern - traffic, accommodation, noise and benefit. As the project submits its Development Application later in 2024, RES will continue to work with community, local council and state government to develop a socially and environmentally responsible renewable energy project.
