Green River online consultation
Green River Wind Farm is a 437MW wind energy project in Lee County, Illinois, US, proposed by Mainstream Renewable Power’s (Mainstream) US team. Though in the early stages of development, Mainstream wanted a platform through which to consult the local community, keep them up-to-date with the project’s progress and to inform them of the latest news and consultation events, and to gather views and opinions. Having worked with Mainstream on their UK, South African and Canadian projects, Mainstream asked us to develop an online consultation for Green River. In addition to the typical Open Debate online consultation features such as the ‘Ask a Question’ page and the ability to register for email updates, we added a Video page for Mainstream to showcase their Informational Videos and videos of their latest public meetings. As a web-based system, Open Debate allows Mainstream to update the Green River website content and manage feedback as and when needed – and from wherever they are in the world.
