Beyond delivering clean energy to around 125,000 Victorian homes, OSMI is committed to a holistic benefit-sharing model based around sharing the profits of the wind farm fairly and creating a positive long-term legacy in the region. OSMI also recognises the existing work of local sustainability and community energy groups and hopes to partner with them around the community co-investment initiative.
OSMI values the community’s contribution to the development of the Delburn Wind Farm, and is engaging with the community to ensure that the Delburn Wind Farm project is well supported and designed appropriately, and to that benefit sharing is tailored for the local context. Local staff have been appointed to enable community participation in the development of the wind farm and a local project office has been opened for a permanent presence within the community. Stop by the office for more information, to ask questions, or just to have a chat.
