Community

Our commitment to people and sustainability

FRV is passionate about this project and recognises the importance of ensuring Goonumbla Solar Farm is a success for the local community.

FRV considers it is important that the views and opinions of the local and broader community are considered and addressed appropriately.

Goonumbla Solar Farm will deliver a number of positive outcomes. It will represent a positive diversification of the regional economy, it will create employment opportunities, and it will have a significantly lower environmental impact relative to coal, diesel and gas-fired power plants.

If you live locally to the project site or are just interested in the project, we encourage you to share any thoughts or suggestions you may have whether they are positive or negative and they will be considered and addressed appropriately
