Transgrid has once again signed on as major sponsor of Moama Lights - Lighting up the Murray, helping to provide a major social and economic boost to the local community.
It is the second time the transmission network provider has been the Platinum Partner for the Murray River Council event which last year attracted more than 25,000 visitors.
Executive General Manager of Corporate & Stakeholder Affairs Maryanne Graham said the sponsorship is part of Transgrid’s commitment to supporting regional communities.
“Transgrid is building the energy superhighway with major projects such as the EnergyConnect interconnector, a piece of critical infrastructure that will enable Australia’s transition to a clean energy future,” she said.
“We are also committed to energising communities by maximising benefits from our pipeline of major projects and creating lasting and positive relationships in areas where we operate.
“Transgrid is once again proud to partner with Murray River Council for this award-winning event which provides a dazzling annual celebration for locals and visitors alike but also a major tourism drawcard which will aid local economic recovery.”
Now in its third year, Moama Lights is an immersive sound and light trail, sharing stories from across the region through state-of-the-art installations, projections and cutting edge moving-light technology.
The event celebrates Indigenous culture, riverboat heritage, and the natural beauty of Horseshoe Lagoon and the majestic Murray River, with Transgrid also donating 200 free tickets to the local community.
Murray River Council Mayor Chris Bilkey thanked Transgrid for its ongoing support for the annual event.
“We are pleased to have these ongoing partnerships so that we can continue to deliver unique storytelling through an ever-changing display of captivating colours, spectacular sound and amazing local art,” Councillor Bilkey said.
“Together, we will continue to stage an iconic event that generates significant economic benefits and increased destination awareness.”
Transgrid and Murray River Council will be lighting up Moama from June 30 to July 23. For more information about the event, visit www.moamalights.com.au
