Right now, EnergyAustralia has the rights to more than 490 megawatts of electricity generated by wind farms in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. Based on an average household consumption of 5MWh this is enough to meet the needs of 282,000 homes for a year.
We’re constantly assessing opportunities to support renewable developments and recently committed to buy an additional 500MW of power each year from new wind and solar projects.
Our renewable energy assets
We operate and jointly own the Cathedral Rocks wind farm in South Australia. It has 33 wind turbines with a generation capacity of 66MW.
We operate the Waterloo wind farm in South Australia. It has 43 turbines with a generation capacity of 131MW.
Our renewable energy projects
We are working on plans to develop a new wind farm in South Australia, 125km north of Adelaide. The proposed Stony Gap wind farm will have 35 turbines with a generation capacity of 105MW.
We are proposing to build a solar power station in northern Victoria up to 250MW using proven photovoltaic technology. The development could provide emission-free electricity to more than 60,000 Victorian homes for more than 20 years.
