Community Investment Testing

Discovering the level of interest

It’s the way of the future: the opportunity to invest directly into infrastructure. We want to understand whether the local community is interested in investing into Sapphire Wind Farm. Yes? Then we’ll look into the possibility of pioneering Australia’s first community investment program into a large scale wind farm.

Community investment is where members of the community are invited to invest in a renewable energy project that’s developed, financed and managed by a third party.

Community Investment Testing

Discovery Sessions

To ascertain the community’s interest, the Sapphire Wind Farm hosted a series of Discovery Sessions across the New England North West.  Sessions were held in Inverell, Glen Innes, Wellingrove, Moree, Tamworth and Armidale.






A survey was undertaken in order to gauge the interest in investing directly into a large-scale commercial wind farm.  The survey opened on the 3rd September and closed on the 31st October 2017.

‘We were approached to be part of the wind farm nearly 10 years ago and it’s exciting to see the plans now becoming a reality. We’re proud to be part of Sapphire Wind Farm and to be involved with this area becoming a leading renewable energy hub.”
