The Snowy 2.0 and Transmission Project is a proposed expansion of the generating capacity of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme. It would link the two existing Snowy Scheme dams, Tantangara and Talbingo, through underground tunnels to an underground power station and involve major upgrades to the NSW transmission system to connect the proposed power station to major load centres across the state.

 

Up to six applications are expected to be submitted for the project, with Snowy Hydro seeking approval for all electricity- generating works and TransGrid seeking approval for all the electricity transmission infrastructure required to connect the proposed power station to major load centres across the state.

 

Snowy 2.0 was declared Critical State Significant Infrastructure (CSSI) in March 2018. For further information on the assessment process please visit our Major Projects website.
