Sharing Benefits

Making a difference in local communities

OVERVIEW

The Western Downs Green Power Hub is a large solar farm project in advanced development and near-construction.

At a size of 480 MWp 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.

Neoen is committed to delivering high quality renewable energy projects. This means we produce affordable reliable electricity from natural energy sources such as sun and wind.

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our Tesla Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $50 million!

We own and operate all of our projects (rather than developing them to be sold), which means we genuinely care about our neighbouring communities.

This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice across the country. We are guided by the wants and needs of the people and places we operate in, and believe in sharing the benefits clean energy provides.
