Regional field days are a valuable opportunity for ElectraNet to engage with the community and its landholders.

During September, ElectraNet had stands at the Riverland and Yorke Peninsula Field days, which provided the perfect opportunity to speak with members of the community and our landholders about projects and the role we play in the state’s electricity network.

More than 13,000 people attended the annual Riverland Field Days at Barmera on September 13 and 14, with ElectraNet using these days as an opportunity to promote Project EnergyConnect, our proposed new interconnector with NSW.

The main areas of community interest about the project included the route of the transmission line, project timing, work opportunities and general project background. We also responded to general ElectraNet questions relating to who we are, what we do and what other projects we have planned.

At the biennial Yorke Peninsula Field Days at Paskeville on September 24 to 26, we also received a lot of interest in Project EnergyConnect, as well as the Eyre Peninsula transmission line project and the role ElectraNet plays in the state’s transmission network.

Planning is already well underway for the 2020 field days, the first of which are in March at Lucindale, in the state’s South East.
