The Coopers Gap Wind Farm is the second greenfield project developed by the Powering Australian Renewables Fund (PARF).
The Coopers Gap Wind Farm will be Australia’s largest Wind Farm. The project is a testament to AGL's commitment to build a sustainable energy future for all Australians.
The Coopers Gap Wind Farm will have a capacity 453 MW and produce around 1,510,000 MWh of renewable energy, powering more than 260,000 average Australian homes. The renewable energy produced would reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 1,180,000 tonnes annually, which is the equivalent of taking over 340,000 cars off the road.
AGL has been granted permission to build up to 123 wind turbines at Coopers Gap.
On Thursday 17 August 2017, AGL announced it has reached financial close on the sale to the Powering Australian Renewables Fund (PARF) of the 453 MW Coopers Gap Wind Farm project at Cooranga North, approximately 250 kilometres north west of Brisbane. The project will be the largest wind farm in Australia on completion.
The location for the Coopers Gap Wind Farm Project is 180km north-west of Brisbane near Cooranga North, between Dalby and Kingaroy. The site will be located on 10 properties near Cooranga North between Dalby and Kingaroy on land which is predominately used for cattle grazing and other farming activities. The wind farm is planned to be connected to a new Powerlink substation along the new Western Downs to Halys 275kV transmission line built by Powerlink.
