Neoen acknowledges the Jirrbal people, Traditional Owners of the land on which Kaban Wind Farm harvests the energy of the wind. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Community Benefits

First Nations Engagement

We co-designed a comprehensive Indigenous Engagement Strategy with the Jirrbal People / Wabubbada Aboriginal Corporation, the Traditional Owners of the lands on which Kaban Green Power Hub is located. This committed Neoen to a range of benefit-sharing measures and ambitious Indigenous Participation targets.

Our project team were supported by Tagai Management Consultants, who helped us engage closely with the Jirrbal People and exceed our targets.

Community Benefit-sharing Program

We believe in sharing the benefits of renewable energies with the communities we operate in.

Neoen is committed to supporting local community initiatives through a $50,000 annual Kaban Green Power Hub Community Benefit Fund.


Fostering creativity and connection in the community through art, culture & community events.

Energy efficiency & ENVIRONMENT

We could provide grants to make rooftop solar and batteries more affordable for community centres or for local conservation initiatives.


We can support communities impacted by natural disasters near our project site or to local emergency services groups.


Addressing local skills development and adding value to educational opportunities


We can allocate funds to local First Nations community for heritage conservation and self determined initiatives.


Contributing to improved health and wellbeing outcomes in regional communities

Neoen, under its Sustainability Framework, has a commitment to create an artwork on all its projects with a capacity of over 50 MW. The artwork aims to celebrate renewable energy and local culture.

One of the wind turbines at the Kaban Green Power Hub is proudly showcasing the artwork designed by Jirrbal artist, Wanirr Godden and Injinoo artist and curator, Teho Ropeyarn.

Titled “Jirrbal Country”, the artwork portrays the significance of Jirrbal Cultural Heritage; the animals, artefacts, patterns and cultural landscapes which are significant in obtaining Native Title; Gayambula (white cockatoo), Yuri (kangaroo), Mungguru (glider) and Gugulu (clapsticks) and Jawun (traditional basket weave).

The artists were guided in their creative process by Jirrbal Elders Marcelle Godden and Bradley Go Sam. Their design was painted onto the turbine by Daniel Wallwork and Jake Bordnaro-Hunter.

This project was initiated and developed by Neoen in collaboration with Wabubadda Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC, and with support from Tagai Management Consultants and OneSpace

Being a part of the Kaban wind farm and connecting with country has been a real privilege. I’m enjoying it.
