Moah Creek Wind Farm set to blow QLD away

The Moah Creek Wind Farm, west of Rockhampton, Queensland (QLD), is the first project to progress through an innovative partnership between CleanCo and Central Queensland Power (CQP).

“We are delighted to partner with CQP in the development of the Moah Creek Wind Farm which, at 372 megawatts (MW) will add significant capacity to our portfolio and allow us to provide our customers with tailored clean energy solutions and advance Queensland’s decarbonisation journey,” CleanCo chief executive officer Tom Metcalfe said.

“CleanCo is committed to working with CQP to ensure this critical project is delivered in collaboration with the local community.

“We recognise our responsibility to get this right for all stakeholders, to ensure maximum economic value flows to regional Queensland, while protecting the environment.”

Once development is completed, Moah Creek will transition to public ownership.

“Because of our publicly-owned energy generators, the Palaszczuk Government can deliver an orderly, timely and sustainable pipeline of renewable energy projects,” said Treasurer Cameron Dick.

“Because the wind and sun are free, these renewable generators like Moah Creek will increase downward pressure on electricity bills for households.

“They will provide the energy needed for more heavy industry in cities like Gladstone and they will help us meet our renewable energy and emissions reduction targets.”
