We are committed to sharing the benefits of the Rye Park Wind Farm with the local communities. Click here to learn more about our community investment initiatives across our projects.
Community Enhancement Fund
In accordance with the Development Consent, a Community Enhancement Fund will be established that will commence when the project starts operating. The Project will contribute the following funding each year (adjusted annually to increase in CPI):
- Hilltops Council: $162,500
- Upper Lachlan Shire Council: $40,000
- Yass Valley Council: $27,500
Independent community groups overseen by the Yass Valley, Hilltops and Upper Lachlan councils will administer the funds. At least 20% of the funds will be allocated to educational needs.
We are inviting our closest neighbours to share in the financial benefits of the wind farm through neighbour agreements. These agreements are part of our commitment to being a good long-term neighbour, sharing benefits and contributing to the local community. If you'd like to find out more about Neighbour Agreements, please contact us at: email@example.com or on 1800 WE TILT (938 458).
Tilt Renewables Revegetation Grants - Expression of Interest period is now closed
Connected, resilient environments lead to healthy and productive farms. Planting native trees and protecting natural areas and waterways can provide numerous production benefits.
Tilt Renewables has sought expressions of interest from land managers within a 30km radius of Rye Park who have a project that seeks to protect and connect remnant patches of vegetation and/or enhance waterways and minor erosion gullies. We are now assessing applications based on the following critera, relating to the Tablelands landscape and biodiversity improvement priorities from South East Local Land Services:
- Connect existing remnant areas by fencing and planting large blocks of trees, tree lanes, clusters and/or paddock trees.
- Protect and enhance existing remnant areas by fencing to exclude stock and/or planting trees and shrubs to increase diversity.
- Rehabilitate creeks and minor/moderate erosion gullies by fencing and planting (earth works will not be funded).
More information on the Tablelands project can be found here:
Tilt Renewables will assess applications with LLS to determine which projects to fund (project materials - fencing and plants). All labour costs will be the landholder’s responsibility and the project will be required to report to either Tilt Renewables, LLS or Boorowa Landcare.
Applications closed 25 November 2022. We will seek to update applicants in early-2023 on the status of their application.
