Cairns Ergon Energy Update
Following the results of our recent Ergon Energy survey, we have invited Energy Queensland to give members an update.
The Institute’s Anna Cox will discuss the survey’s key findings, and share how the performance of Ergon Energy has impacted members.
Energy Queensland’s Ben Aston will share the latest updates on how they are addressing ongoing delays, increasing costs, and non-contestable works in Ergon Energy territory, with a particular focus on the Cairns area.
Cairns Regional Council’s new Director of Planning, Growth & Sustainability Ed Johnson will also provide an update on their plans for 2022 and beyond.
Take this opportunity to have your voice heard and be a part of the discussion.
Don’t miss this chance to connect directly with Energy Queensland and find out how we can work towards achieving mutual goals.
