What is a Community Reference Group (CRG)?

The CRG provides an important forum for open discussion between representatives of Moorabool Wind Farm, the local Communities,

Local Council and other interested stakeholders.

It provides a way for the project team to give regular updates on wind farm activities, invite discussion and proactively respond to any questions or concerns of the community.

Why appoint a CRG?

The CRG is a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to members of the community and to receive feedback.
