Neoen acknowledges the Ngadjuri people, Traditional Owners of the land on which Goyder Renewables Zone will harvest and store the energy of the wind and sun. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Local Employment

We try not to fly in workers from everywhere to help us complete our renewable energy projects.

Instead, we hire local people who know the land and have the skills and enthusiasm to support us during construction.

Our core team become regulars at local cafes and pubs, and we love to work with local suppliers who provide their products and services to help us over the life of the project.

Our neighbour benefit sharing program provides neighbours with an annual payment throughout the operations phase of the project (25-30 years). 

It is based on the number of turbines within certain distances of your house. 
The nearer the turbines are, the higher the amount. 

The final amount will depend on the wind turbine layout, which will be determined 
following the approval of the Development Application and in the construction period. 
The annual payments will begin once the project starts operating. 

Please note that the program does not prevent neighbours from expressing their views 
for or against the project, either privately or publicly at any time. 

Expected benefits for South Australia

In June 2020, Aurecon undertook an economic impact assessment of the expected economic benefits the project would deliver for South Australia and, in particular, the region of Yorke & Mid North Region.
