Dinawan Energy Hub – November 2023 Update
16th November 2023
Exciting November news: the Dinawan Energy Hub (DEH) is taking shape.
The Dinawan Energy Hub (DEH) is a proposed hybrid wind, solar and battery energy storage project to be located about halfway between Coleambally and Jerilderie, on the land of the traditional owners of the Wiradjuri people and several smaller nations of the Murrumbidgee plains. The land is currently used for grazing, which would continue once the project is constructed.
The project is a State Significant Development and will require a comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Two separate development applications will be submitted to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment: the Dinawan Wind Farm, and the Dinawan Solar Farm. The Scoping Reports can be accessed on the project website at www.dinawanenergyhub.com.
The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Dinawan Solar Farm is in its final stages of preparation, and we anticipate that it will be made available for public exhibition in late 2023.
This exhibition phase is a crucial step in the planning approval and assessment process, providing an opportunity for the community to examine comprehensive project plans and share their feedback by making submissions.
To facilitate engagement and address any queries or concerns, Spark Renewables intends to host community consultation drop-in sessions during the exhibition period.
We will promptly announce the details of these sessions once the exhibition dates are confirmed, ensuring an inclusive and transparent process for all stakeholders.
