Kilara Energy is a member of the Clean Energy Council and committed to its Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Projects, a commitment to engage respectfully with communities, be sensitive to environmental and cultural values, and make a positive contribution to the regions in which we operate.
We look forward to engaging with the local community including residents in the nearby towns of Balranald, Hay and Moulamein, as well as interested people from the wider Hay Plains region.
Kilara aims to engage the community widely, address concerns in a timely manner (see Feedback Form here, contact by phone on 1800 161 320, or email us), and where practicable incorporate community input to deliver improved outcomes and lasting benefits.
First Nations groups across the region within which Wilan Energy Park is located have a connection to Country that stretches back to the beginning of time. Kilara acknowledges this and pays respects to all Elders past, present and emerging.
Kilara is working in partnership with Nari Nari Tribal Council, traditional custodians of the lands known as ‘Gayini’ in the north of the project area, to develop and demonstrate a model of engagement for the renewables industry that generates real and lasting Cultural, social, environmental and economic benefits for First Nations people of the region.
‘Wilan’ is Nari Nari language meaning wind.
Kilara values the opportunity to connect with the local communities within the regions in which it is active.
Queries and feedback can be either submitted to the project team by email, by phone on 1800 161 320 or via the project feedback form.
As the formal planning process for the project gets underway, information sessions will be scheduled so that community members will have the opportunity to discuss the proposal with the project team.
Kilara will prepare regular newsletter updates on the latest going on with the project. You can subscribe to the newsletters by registering below.
