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.

For Your Community

Goyder Renewables Zone will bring a range of benefits to Burra and surrounding areas.

Watch this video to see the benefits another Neoen project brought to communities in Wunghnu, Numurkah in regional Victoria.

community benefits program

We believe in sharing the benefits of renewable energies with the communities we operate in.

The Community Benefits Sharing Program will provide significant, meaningful benefits to communities around the Goyder Renewables Zone.

We have committed to $250,000 per annum, for funding the Goyder Community Benefits Program.


We can allocate funds to local community projects such as sports, clubs, tourism and heritage via a yearly grants process.


We can support local arts or tourism initiatives. On each of our projects we deliver a public artwork which celebrates local culture and renewable energy. 


We can provide support for any local conservation and biodiversity protection initiatives.


We can support local and regional education and training initiatives, such as scholarships for renewable energy engineering.


We can allocate funds to local First Nations community for heritage conservation and self determined initiatives.

Local ideas

Any particular local needs you’d like to see the project help out with?

In addition to this existing commitment, we will also provide an annual
funding under our Goyder North Community Benefit-Sharing Program.


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.

We applied for a grant to install a wind turbine & solar panel array at the school. The purpose was for the students to understand the different streams of energy production. It was a very simple application process.

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.
