DP Energy held Community Open Days for the Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park project at the Port Augusta Institute Theatre on the 5th and 6th of May 2015. The purpose of the Open Days was to provide the community with an opportunity to view information about the project, to speak directly with the developers and their technical representatives, and to have questions answered in person.
Approximately 70 people attended the Open Days, and the feedback received was generally positive with more than 70% of questionnaires completed indicating support for the project. Whilst these only represent approximately one quarter of the total number of attendees, our feeling is that this is a fair representation of the positive nature of the event. Much of the interest was on the potential employment and other opportunities that the project will bring to the region.
DP Energy would like to thank all those who attended. The Open Day material is available is available for download by following the Port Augusta project link on this website
