Renewable energy company Neoen announced its plan to construct a wind farm between the towns of Williams and Narrogin to residents last week via a leaflet drop inviting the Wheatbelt South communities to information sessions on June 28. The proposed project would span about 6000 hectares and be constructed along Williams-Kondinin Road on freehold land overlapping the borders of the Narrogin and Williams Shires. Neoen Australia WA state lead Nathan Ling said that the organisation currently has development approval for grid-scale storage battery projects near Collie and Muchea and plans to build a 300MW capacity farm between the the two Wheatbelt South towns. “Neoen is exploring the feasibility of a large-scale wind farm project called the Narrogin Wind Farm,” he said. “While the project is still in early stages of development, we are commencing our engagement with neighbours and community groups.” Neoen Australia’s head of engagement Lisa Stiebel said that the drop-in sessions presented an opportunity for Neoen and the Wheatbelt South community to meet. “We’re keen to introduce everyone to the proposed Narrogin Wind Farm project and to our team,” she said. “It’s a drop-in session meaning you can come at any time, there will be food and drink available and we look forward to welcoming everyone. “There will be posters and maps to look at, information brochures to share with friends and family and there will be opportunities to chat with a number of experts. “We’re really keen for everyone to share their thoughts at the stage when there are lots of ways the project can be adjusted.” Two community drop-in information sessions will be held on June 28. The first will run in Williams at the Williams RSL Hall from 12-2pm followed by a session in Narrogin at the John Higgins Community Centre from 4-6pm.
