Central-West Orana REZ Access Scheme Consultation
Access Schemes are a key part of the NSW Government’s work to coordinate and encourage investment in Renewable Energy Zones (REZ) and realise the objectives of the Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap and enabling legislation. The Central-West Orana REZ Access Scheme will be the first of its kind in the National Electricity Market.
The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (the Department) is committed to delivering the best outcomes for all stakeholders and recently completed public consultation on an issues paper to seek public submissions on the access scheme for the Central-West Orana REZ.
The Department received over 50 written submissions and hosted a consultation webinar with around 300 participants.
Non-confidential submissions (ZIP 62MB) are available to download in line with our confidentiality policy.
Public submissions to the issues paper will inform detailed design and future declaration of a preferred access scheme for the Central-West Orana REZ as required by the Electricity Infrastructure Investment Act 2020.
To stay across further updates and opportunities to input to access scheme development, join our mailing list by emailing: rez [at] planning.nsw.gov.au.
As part of the consultation process, the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment hosted a public webinar on Thursday 15 April 2021 for stakeholders to ask questions and raise any issues or concerns regarding the Central-West Orana REZ Access Scheme Issues Paper.
The webinar was attended by around 300 participants. To request a copy of the webinar presentation send us an email at: rez [at] planning.nsw.gov.au.
