Genuine Community Engagement
CWP Renewables is committed to genuine community consultation and developing strong relationships with local landowners and the wider community.
Consultation relating to the proposed Glenellen Solar Farm project commenced in early 2018, and to date has included conversations and meetings with potential host landowners, neighbouring landowners, TransGrid council and the Hon. Greg Aplin (NSW Member for Albury).
Ongoing consultation will be stimulated with a range of stakeholders through the submission of the Preliminary Environmental Assessment.

The issues raised and resolutions found through this process will be documented in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
