Hills of Gold Preservation Inc.

Its current project is research and assessment of information regarding Engie’s proposed Hills of Gold Wind Farm.

We all want to do something good for our environment. While three levels of government are pushing for an increase in renewable energy, it is important to consider the right product and right location to achieve this goal.
For the majority of Nundle, Crawney, Hanging Rock and Timor residents and friends, Engie’s proposal for 65 x 230m wind turbine generators near Hanging Rock is not the right location for such a development. Preservation of our natural environment and heritage is our priority.
“Meeting the 2020 goals of the Australian Renewable Energy Target scheme would require approximately only one in three of prospective wind farm projects…to go ahead. There is…an ability to select wind farm projects that meet other key parameters, including economic and regional development goals, while also optimal from a community impact site-selection criteria.” (National Wind Farm Commissioner’s 2017 report)
