Sharing Benefits

Making a difference in local communities

OVERVIEW

The Western Downs Green Power Hub is a large solar farm project approaching construction.

At a size of 460 MW of installed solar panels once built, it will be Australia’s largest operating solar farm. The site also holds up to 150MW battery energy storage potential.

SOLAR

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

BATTERY

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

LOCATION

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.
