About the Project

The Cameron Downs Energy Park is located on approximately 32,000 hectares of land 45 km south of Hughenden in Flinders Shire, Queensland.

The development will consist of up to 200 turbines with an installed capacity of around 1,500 megawatts (MW). This will provide enough green energy to power around a milliong Queensland homes, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 4 million tonnes per year.

Community Benefits

Upon commencement of operations, a contribution of $2,000 per constructed turbine will be designated to local community benefits schemes. The schemes will be developed in consultation with the community, and the contributions provided each year to ensure the project’s financial benefits are shared across the local region.

To find out more about the Cameron Downs Energy Park community benefits schemes, please contact info@CameronDownsEnergyPark.com.au.

Host Landholder Benefits

The economic boost to farmers hosting wind farm infrastructure provides them with additional annual income from the project for decades. This regular income helps farmers counteract swings in commodity prices to better ‘drought proof’ their operations. As a result, the additional income can sustain local farming and provide greater financial protection for years to come.

The roads constructed for turbine access provide landholders with all-weather access across their property which helps improve farm management practices and bushfire access.
