Interested in the latest updates from the Snowy 2.0 renewable energy mega project?
Snowy Hydro and Snowy 2.0 principal contractor Future Generation Joint Venture are inviting local community members to attend information sessions being held throughout the Snowy Mountains in November.
These in-person events enable locals to be updated about the project, ask questions and provide feedback. Hear from the Snowy 2.0 team about:
- the recent project reset
- project progress, construction activities and news
- traffic management, environment and safety
- accommodation, recreation access and other local issues;
- local suppliers, jobs and training on Snowy 2.0.
Snowy Hydro CEO Dennis Barnes said with a significant public focus on Snowy 2.0 in recent months, the sessions provided opportunities to find out more directly from project team members.
“We are committed to being open and transparent with you – our local communities – about our large and complex pumped-hydro project. A project of this scale and complexity has, and will, face challenges, but we continue to make solid progress across our construction and manufacturing operations.
“Snowy 2.0 is being engineered to deliver clean and reliable storage and electricity generation for Australians for the next 150 years. It is a project that is generating jobs and significant investment in regional areas.
“I encourage everyone to come along to one of our community information sessions to hear the latest about Snowy 2.0, discuss any local concerns that you may have and ask questions.”
The Snowy 2.0 community information sessions in November will be held in Talbingo, Tumut, Tumbarumba, Cooma and Adaminaby.
There will be some drop-in sessions, with the chance to speak one-on-one with project team members, and events featuring a formal presentation followed by community Q&As.
