Murray Emerson: Bulgara Green Energy Hub was an idea to have an energy entails in our community. From everybody’s point of view, I think green energy is a very important means of energy going forward. So we’re now into that business and that will benefit, not only our community, but the community where some of this energy might well be going.

Laurent: We’re extremely proud of what has been done in Bulgana both by the team that set up the scheme in place. But also with the support of the Northern Grampians area council and all local stakeholders, neighbours, land owners and local community. It’s important for us to be at forefront of the energy transition and we believe this Hub is a great example of this.
