Environmental Impact Statement

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Central-West Orana REZ transmission project was placed on public exhibition between Thursday 28 September and Wednesday 8 November 2023. During this time EnergyCo invited the community to provide feedback via a formal submission on the NSW Planning Portal.

The EIS provides a detailed description of the project and how it will be constructed, and a technical assessment of the project, including potential economic, environmental and social impacts. It also outlines a range of mitigation measures which would be implemented to avoid, minimise and/or mitigate potential impacts to the surrounding environment and local communities during construction and operation of the project.
