TransGrid is reinforcing the transmission network in southern NSW with HumeLink – a new 500 kV transmission line project that will improve the flow of electricity between new generation sources and major demand centres in NSW. HumeLink will provide a crucial hub for the flow of electricity in the National Electricity Market (NEM). The project will enable high volume energy transfer around the NEM improving access to affordable electricity.
Residents in the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) area are invited to attend a briefing on the project to be held on at 4pm on Monday, 28th September 2020 at the Gundagai Council Chambers. The briefing will provide a full update on the project and end with Q&A’s.
The project will help unblock existing network congestion and bring new generation online. Energy consumers will benefit from an increased electricity transfer capacity between the eastern states and regional communities will benefit from jobs, supporting regional economic growth.
Any person wishing to attend must register with Council as attendance is limited to 20 due to COVID-19 social distancing and public meeting restrictions.
Please contact CGRC on 1300 459 689 to register your attendance prior to 4pm on Monday 28th September 2020.
