Neoen acknowledges the Wiradjuri people, Traditional Owners of the land on which Alectown Wind Farm will harvest the energy of the wind. We pay our respect to their Elders, past present and emerging.


Despite good wind resource and support from local community members, Neoen has decided to withdraw its plans for the Alectown Wind Farm project. This means that we will not be building this project.

Results from the preliminary biodiversity survey and issues with grid connection are the main reasons for this decision. We cannot develop this project without causing significant negative impacts on biodiversity or hurting the project’s financial viability. We have therefore decided to let the project go.

We sincerely thank the community for their interest in and support for this project. If you have any questions or any topic that you would like to discuss with us, then we welcome you getting in touch via our Contact Us form.

Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.

With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.

This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice in Australia.
