Dinawan Energy Hub – Newsletter #1
17 October 2021
This is the first community newsletter of the Dinawan Energy Hub (DEH) – a hybrid wind, solar and battery storage project planned for an area about halfway between Coleambally and Jerilderie on the land of the traditional owners of the Murrumbidgee plains.
What is proposed?
The solar farm would consist of photovoltaic (PV) modules mounted on single axis trackers that slowly rotate and follow the sun from east to west each day. The wind farm would consist of wind turbine generators, typically spaced about 500-1,000m apart and connected via underground cables and all-weather roads.
Once constructed, sheep would continue to graze on both the solar and wind farm land. Spark Renewables has successfully implemented this at Bomen Solar Farm north of Wagga Wagga. A containerised battery energy storage system would be built with the solar farm, enabling electricity to be exported when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.
Our face-to-face open drop-in sessions will be held in the following locations from 2pm-7pm:
- TUESDAY, 7 DECEMBER: COLEAMBALLY BOWLING CLUB AUDITORIUM
- WEDNESDAY, 8 DECEMBER: JERILDERIE COUNCIL HALL (IAN GILBERT ROOM)
You are welcome to drop in at any time to meet the Spark Renewables team, ask questions and obtain information about the DEH.
If you are unable to make these drop-in sessions, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 271 419 to have a chat or organise another time to meet.
