Crystal Brook Energy Farm Proposal Updated

Renewable_energy_generic.jpgNeoen Australia has halved the size of its proposed wind farm near Crystal Brook after feedback from the local community and the Port Pirie Council.

The project originally proposed the development of 150MW of wind power in addition to the solar and battery energy.

In response to the feedback Neoen Energy has cut the number of proposed wind turbines by more than 50%, leaving only 26 to be developed.

The project has faced backlash from the local community over the size of the wind turbines, being the tallest in Australia.

The development plans are currently before the State Commission Assessment Panel.

Neoen Energy also plans to create an $80,000-per-year Community Fund on completion of the project for community projects that drive environmental and social change.
