Legislation passed in November 1976 provided for the construction of a 4,000-Megawatt power generating project with coal supply from a new open cut at Loy Yang.

Site works commenced in February 1977 and in 1982 the first dredger at the open-cut was commissioned and commercial operations commenced with the removal of overburden in 1982.

Commercial operation of the first 500-Megawatt power unit began on 30 June 1984. By 1996, the sixth 500-Megawatt power unit was operating.

AGL acquired Loy Yang in 2012.

Since AGL’s acquisition, we’ve continued to invest in Loy Yang ensuring energy supply reliability in Victoria.

In 2022, we announced a targeted closure date for Loy Yang A power station in 2035 as AGL reshapes its future energy portfolio in one of the most significant decarbonisation initiatives in Australia.

We believe this ambitious and achievable plan will deliver a responsible and accelerated transition to a low carbon future for our customers, communities, employees, shareholders and our planet.
