The Western Downs Green Power Hub is a large renewable energy project consisting of a 460 MWp solar farm and a 270 MW / 540 MWh big battery.

It is currently the largest operating solar farm in Australia. The big battery is located next to the solar farm and is currently under construction.


Solar farms are quiet, with the same solar panels you would place on your roof – there are just more of them.


Battery storage allows us to store the wind and solar energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.

The project is located 22km south-east of Chinchilla in the Western Downs Region, in close proximity to a transmission line and less than 6kms from Queensland Powerlink’s Western Downs Sub-station.

Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.

With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.

This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice in Australia.
