The project will bring significant investment into the Banana and Biloela area and Lacour Energy aims to share the benefits and opportunities with the wider community.

Before and during construction, we will hold regular meetings with the community to ensure we inform the community of the works that will be taking place. If you want to register for updates on events or newsletters please fill out this form.

Community Fund

A Community Fund of $100,000 per year will be established for use on projects that benefit the community within the Banana Shire. This will be administered by representatives of the local community.

The Community Fund could be used to support initiatives such as:

  • Community building improvements

  • Solar installations or energy efficiency improvements

  • Training, education and apprenticeships

  • Rural fire service equipment upgrades

  • Increasing Telecommunication coverage

  • Tourist facilities

Please get in touch if you would like any further information.

  • 9 July 2019 at the Biloela Civic Centre.

  • 24th of September at the Biloela Civic Centre.

  • 25th of September at Sutherland Hall in Banana.
