The AGL Oaklands Hill Wind Farm produces 63 MW of clean, green energy - enough to power approximately 28,000 average Australian homes annually.
AGL is proud to be the major sponsor of the Peaks and Trails Festival of Running for the third year in succession. Peaks and Trails is a picturesque run starting and finishing in the heart of Dunkeld. The weekend offers something for all levels of trail enthusiasts with access to beautiful Southern Grampians trails and a number of private trails normally inaccessible to the public. A team of five AGL runners will be participating this year. AGL attended a committee meeting with organisers, and discussed opportunities for partnership and promotion of the event. More information can be found here.
The AGL Ultra Marathon – part of the Peaks and Trails Festival of Running – has been run and won, with over 60 taking part in the 50km run.
Sponsored through the Oaklands Hill Wind Farm Community Support Fund, the Festival attracted over 300 competitors – up around 50% on last year.
Australian Ultra Marathon Team member, Kellie Emmerson, dominated the Ladies Open categories, taking out both the Mount Abrupt Challenge (a 6km run up the mountain) and the Ultra Marathon – on consecutive days… and in record times!
For the first time, a team of AGL runners took part, with Rawle Kendall (Accountant, New Energy), Natalie Blair (FP&A Manager, Sales and Marketing), and Hoang Nguyen (Asset Performance Analyst, Wind and Solar) doing the business proud.
The team was joined by Natalie’s running club mate, Amelia Griffo, after James Bower had to withdraw at the last minute with a broken foot.
The team put in an outstanding effort:
Hannah Coffey, Community Relations Manager, said that AGL is very proud to be a major sponsor of the Festival.
“We’re in the business of energy and it’s great to partner with an event that so embodies high levels of energy, enthusiasm, determination and drive”, Hannah said.
“AGL is Australia’s largest operator and developer of renewable energy generation, including the nearby Oaklands Hill Wind Farm, and we are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate
