TransGrid to hold Interconnector Community Information Sessions

NSW Energy company Transgrid will hold community information sessions across the Riverina next week regarding its EnergyConnect interconnector project.

The EnergyConnect project is a key element of the Australian Energy Market Operator's Integrated System Plan. As a result, the NSW Government has declared it Critical State Significant Infrastructure (CSSI).

The NSW and SA governments believe the project will lower power bills for homes in both states. Transgrid is on record saying the project will create as many as 1500 jobs, primarily across regional NSW.

EnergyConnect includes a new 900km electricity interconnector that will connect power grids across three Australian states, driving competition in the wholesale electricity market.

The interconnector is being built between Wagga Wagga in New South Wales and Robertstown in South Australia, with a connection to Red Cliffs in Victoria. Transgrid is partnering with ElectraNet in SA to deliver the project, with Transgrid building the NSW section.

The EnergyConnect team will also be hosting community information sessions where you can drop in any time, ask questions about the EIS and learn more about the project.

The first of the sessions will be held next Monday with the dates, times and locations as follows:
