Powerlink is considering potential transmission corridors to connect the proposed Borumba Pumped Hydro Project to the existing electricity transmission network. Due to the potential generation and storage capacity of the Borumba Pumped Hydro Project, new transmission infrastructure will be needed from the proposed pumped hydro facility at Lake Borumba to existing Powerlink substations at Tarong and Woolooga.
At this early stage, Powerlink is looking at social, economic and environmental factors that might influence where proposed corridors could be located. Early and ongoing engagement with communities and other stakeholders is an important part of this process.
We value community and stakeholder feedback and local input to inform and improve our planning and decision-making on potential transmission connections for the Borumba Pumped Hydro Project.
The project team is holding community drop-in sessions in Yarraman and Nanango in mid-August 2022 for the local community to meet the team and learn more about the project. Drop-in sessions have already been held in Gympie and Imbil.
