Our refined plan will reduce the farm's energy producing capacity to 5MW, down from 9MW.

Formal comments and objections to RN's planning application to the Victorian Planning Minister closed in late September.

Three factors have influenced RN's decision to refine its plan.

  • Response from our community (two objections and one comment)
  • Response from referral authorities including the CFA.
  • Feedback from the energy industry around current connection issues which indicates that for our ambitions (to supply Newstead or at least all of the 3462 postcode with renewable energy) 5MW is the optimal size.
