OVERVIEW

Goyder Renewables Zone is a large hybrid renewable energy project proposed for the area around Burra, in the Goyder region of South Australia. 

It’s part of a new generation of projects that combine wind with solar and battery storage to provide renewable energy 24/7.

WIND

Wind turbines are tall structures that can capture stronger winds at higher altitudes. Turbines are generally 150-270m in height.

SOLAR

Solar farms are quiet, with the same solar panels you would place on your roof – there are just more of them.

BATTERY

Battery storage allows us to store the wind and solar energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.

LOCATION

The project is near the town of Burra in the north west of South Australia, 2 hours’ drive from Adelaide.

The Zone consists of 2 separate projects: Goyder North (north of Burra), and Goyder South (south of Burra).

The famous Goyder’s Line of Rainfall runs through the middle of the site.

Neoen produce affordable reliable electricity from natural renewable sources such as the sun and wind.

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $116 million in 2019 alone !

We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.

This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice across Australia.
