AGL Energy was proud to be the major sponsor of Music in the Vines for 2017. Now in its second year, the festival was a huge success, with the crowd enjoying performances from a variety of local and national acts, and a great selection of local food and wine. Congratulations to the Music in the Vines committee for organising such a great event and in particular, to Pieter and Michelle Badenhorst, for being such wonderful hosts!
This year, the Macarthur Wind Farm hosted a free bike ride on the morning of the festival as part of the 'Big Day Out Macarthur'. Taking in approximately 10km of established road, the track through the wind farm is great for riders of all experience levels, and all riders received discounted entry to the festival. Riders were enjoyed getting up close to the wind turbines, and took the opportunity to ask questions and share their views
AGL is pleased to work with local community groups and organisations as part of our Community Support Fund.
The Moyne Shire Council administers the Macarthur Wind Farm Community Engagement Committee (CEC). The CEC meets regularly, and is comprised of the Mayor, two Councillors, and up to four community members, along with two AGL representatives.
The CEC’s purpose is to:
1) To provide advice on strategies to ensure the effective flow of information to and from the community regarding the Macarthur Wind Farm.
2) To act as a conduit for information flow between Council, the project proponent and the community, regarding the Macarthur Wind Farm.
The Macarthur Wind Farm’s Charter can be found here. For further information, contact Moyne Shire Council.
AGL met with a Moyne Shire Council Officer in December 2016 to receive an overview of the CEC’s activities and to discuss opportunities going forward.
AGL is pleased to continue supporting the Hawkesdale P12 College’s Hands on Learning program for the 2017 school year. In December 2016, AGL attended a tour of the College, where staff provided a detailed overview of the Hands on Learning centre and results of AGL’s contribution. AGL also attended the End of Year Presentation Night along with Member for South-West Coast Roma Britnell, Moyne Shire Council Mayor Jim Doukas, and other local business representatives. Discussions were held with the school community regarding opportunities for collaboration going forward, including tours of the wind farm.
