Renewable Energy Systems (RES) – the company behind the development of Stanwell’s Tarong West Wind Farm at Ironpot – has scheduled two more community information sessions for local residents.

The sessions, at Ironpot and Kumbia in April, are an opportunity for residents to meet the project team.

Tarong West (formerly known as the Iron Leaf Wind Farm) will consist of 128 wind turbines located across several properties about 8km north-west of Kumbia.

According to the latest information distributed by RES, the project layout and design has now been finalised.

RES is now preparing to to lodge planning and environment applications with the State and Federal governments but plans to meet with residents before this happens.

In September last year, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the State Government would invest $776 million from its $2 billion Queensland Renewable Energy and Hydrogen Jobs Fund into the project, and once built by RES it would be managed by Stanwell Corporation.

The information sessions by RES will be held at:

  • Ironpot – April 19 – 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Ironpot Hall
  • Kumbia – April 19 – 4:00pm to 7:00pm at the Kumbia Memorial Hall

More information about the project is available online
