Oaklands Hill Community Matters


The AGL Oaklands Hill Wind Farm produces 63 MW of clean, green energy - enough to power approximately 28,000 average Australian homes annually.

Benefit for the Community

  • AGL has established a community fund to support local projects. Funding will be allocated through consultation, ranking and agreement with local recognised community associations.
  • In addition to the community fund, and in association with the Glenelg-Hopkins Catchment Management Authority, AGL has also committed funding towards Brolga Habitats and salinity management. 
  • AGL is committed to ongoing monitoring, offsets and local community investment for the life of the project, to conform to planning permits.
  • AGL will continue with its strategy of building long term local partnerships by investing in the local community.
  • AGL reduces risk to the environment and minimises its environmental impact by integrating considerations of environmental sustainability into all activities. Key considerations for AGL and its stakeholders in minimising environmental impact include pollution prevention, promotion of waste minimisation, reuse and recycling, the efficient use of resources such as water and energy and protecting cultural heritage.
