Local Benefits


Western Downs Green Power Hub will bring a range of benefits to the Western Downs region.

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 Western Downs Green Power Hub.

Community benefit fund

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

Support for Indigenous Initiatives

We are working with the Barunggam Traditional Owners on employment initiatives and other ideas.


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.

Hiring begins in July 2020.
