Our development application is in

Jim’s Plain Renewable Energy Park

You can give your feedback until Wednesday 29 January 2020 directly to Circular Head Council. Our application describes in detail the social, cultural and environmental aspects of Jim’s Plain Renewable Energy Park, which will see the construction of up to 31 wind turbines and solar with a capacity of up to 240 MW. It represents a potential investment of around $350 million. We’ve worked hard to make the application as informative as possible, including numerous surveys and studies covering flora, terrestrial fauna, avifauna, Aboriginal heritage, European heritage, community and the environment.

How it works

Renewable energy is energy collected from resources that replenish naturally. These include wind and sunlight - the energy sources we're looking to collect at the Jim's Plain and Robbins Island Renewable Energy Parks.
