community benefit-sharing program

We believe in sharing the benefits of renewable energies with the communities we operate in.

The Program will provide significant, meaningful benefits to communities around the Eglinton Solar Farm.

These are some of the ideas that are being suggested. We’re interested to hear your thoughts, please provide your feedback below.

Community benefit fund

We allocate funds to local community projects such as sports, clubs, tourism and heritage via a yearly grants process.

POSSIBILITY TO INVEST

Community co-investment in renewables is common overseas and just starting in Australia.

ARTS AND CULTURE

Fostering creativity and connection in the community through art and culture.

ECONOMIC BENEFITS

We expect the solar farm will amount to a $200 million infrastructure investment.

During construction, we estimate 230 jobs will be created with an economic boost for local accommodation and service sectors.

After construction, 5-8 jobs will be created during operations of the project.

We will begin hiring before construction.
