Who is ReD4NE?

ReD4NE is a community based, not-for-profit, incorporated community alliance. Our organisation was formed in 2021. ReD4NE promotes responsible renewable energy development. It has been developed to provide a regional voice for concerned community and landowners as to what is proving to be an uncontrolled surge of wind and solar project development. ReD4NE is acting as an umbrella group for local communities impacted by large scale renewable energy projects. Red4NE is proposing fair and responsible renewable energy development by accepting its share of projects but not saturation of our region. Our aim is to reduce the number of gigawatts for the REZNE.

Can you imagine how many vehicles like this will travel on our roads when the construction of renewable energy power stations starts?

Let the discussion between the project developer and the community happen before the construction of the wind or solar projects begin.
