We believe generating low cost renewable energy is the key to powering communities
The wellbeing of the community is a core component of our work. Our approach to engaging with the local community is both genuine and lasting. We own our projects from development right through to operations. This gives us unrivalled experience through the entire project life and provides us with a deep-founded respect for people, communities and the environment.
We always welcome your contact and feedback should you have any questions or concerns about our projects, no matter what stage they’re in.

CWP Renewables Approach
Community benefit sharing and sponsorships
We share the benefits of our projects by supporting communities over the long term. We do this through a range of opportunities such as community benefits funds, voluntary planning agreements, community sponsorship and grant initiatives.
We recognise that each community is different, and we aim to tailor benefits at each project and make positive lasting contribution to each region. Initiative examples include:
- Education and training opportunities
- Community development programs
- Health and well-being initiatives
- Environmental initiatives
Community Consultative Committee
The purpose of a community consultative committee (CCC) is to provide a forum for open discussion.
It is a space for us to speak with representatives from the community, the council and other stakeholders about specific matters relating to each project.
A CCC is included in every single one of our projects. The CCC follows the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s Community Consultative Committee Guidelines for State Significant Projects.
Clean Energy Council Best Practice Charter
CWP Renewables is a signatory to the Clean Energy Council’s Community Engagement Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments. This involves a voluntary set of commitments that we will uphold when developing and operating our clean energy projects.
We work respectfully with the communities in which work, are sensitive to environmental and cultural values and aim to make a positive contribution to the regions in which we operate.
