The Banana Range Wind Farm is a proposed renewable development about 20km west of Biloela, in Central Queensland. The project proposes to build a 230-megawatt wind farm with enough energy to power 15,000 homes. Visit Banana Range Wind Farm for more project information.
The Banana Range Wind Farm developers, EDF Renewables, received planning approval from the Queensland Department of State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDMIP), and from the Federal Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE). Powerlink has since been engaged by EDF Renewables under an Early Works Agreement to consider options to connect the wind farm to the transmission network in the region.
As part of this, Powerlink has started early engagement with landholders, community members and other stakeholders to gather information and feedback locally. Our early discussions are focused on seeking input and insights to help guide our planning.
We are committed to ongoing genuine and timely engagement with landholders, local communities and other stakeholders to support the development and delivery of renewable projects connecting to our transmission network.
Your input is important to help us understand landholder and community views and areas of interest and importance.
We will be hosting community information drop-in sessions in Biloela in the coming weeks.
The sessions will highlight a number of corridor options for the wind farm connection based on feedback and input from the local community to-date. We will be seeking further feedback from landholders and the wider community on the project, as well as the corridor options presented. This will help us identify the most suitable corridor for the new transmission line.
JULY 2022 COMMUNITY INFORMATION SESSIONS
We recently completed community information drop-in sessions in Biloela, between 11-13 July 2022 where the community had an opportunity to meet with our team, ask questions and provide feedback and input.
The sessions provided an overview of the study area, proposed project, timeframes and project approval processes.
We thank the community for dropping by and sharing their insights with us. This input will help inform our decision-making about potential corridor options.
We welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss and listen to your feedback. Alternatively please contact us by phone, email or please fill in the form or leave a comment on the interactive project map below.
