Community benefits

The project will provide a number of benefits including:

  • Direct and indirect business opportunities for the local and regional economy, potentially including equipment suppliers, contractors, labour hire companies, accomodation providers, eateries and fuel suppliers etc;

  • Employment opportunities, with several hundred employees needed during the construction period of 12-24 months;

  • Helping meet the NSW and Commonwealth government renewable energy targets;

  • Annual reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and generation of enough clean renewable electricity to power more than 250,000 NSW homes; and

  • Increasing energy security by replacing ageing fossil fuel generators when they retire from service.

UPC is also considering other ways of supporting the local community and is keen to hear your thoughts.

We’re here to answer questions you have.
