Dinawan Wind Farm – Environmental Impact Statement Public Exhibition

The 2.3 gigawatt (GW) Dinawan Energy Hub (DEH) is a proposed hybrid renewable energy project being developed by Spark Renewables. DEH consists of the Dinawan Wind Farm, and the Dinawan Solar Farm accompanied by a battery energy storage system. The DEH is in the South West Renewable Energy Zone, about halfway between Coleambally and Jerilderie near Transgrid’s Dinawan Substation on the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri people and several smaller nations of the Murrumbidgee plains.

Both the wind farm and solar farm are State Significant Developments to be assessed by the NSW and Commonwealth Governments.

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Dinawan Wind Farm has been submitted to the NSW Department of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure (DPHI), and is on public exhibition from Friday 12 July – Thursday 8 August. The next phase is ‘Response to Submissions’ where Spark Renewables responds to the feedback received during the exhibition period.

The Spark Renewables Team will be hosting public consultation events on 23 July – 24 July during the exhibition of the EIS. We will be on hand to show study results, share project information and answer any questions. The location and times are:

  • Tuesday, 23 July 2024 at 1-3:30pm: Jerilderie Library John Monash Media Room
  • Wednesday, 24 July 2024 at 3-6:30pm (with a presentation at 5:30pm): Muddy Duck Tapas Bar & Events in Coleambally

Dinawan Solar Farm EIS public exhibition was from 17 November to 15 December 2023; and is currently under assessment by the DPHI.

Spark Renewables is part of the leading Malaysian energy utility, Tenaga Nasional Berhad, a group of companies owning and operating renewable energy projects in Malaysia, Turkey, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Australia.
