Sell into the market or store energy in the Capricornia PHES

The Capricornia Wind Farm (EWF) is a proposed large-scale wind farm to share the same connection to the National Electricity Market as the Capricornia PHES and forms a key component of the Capricornia Renewable Energy Hub.

This project’s development will be accelerated ahead on the Capricornia PHES to meet the demand for new wind generation in Queensland that predominately generates during the evening and nighttime hours and augments large-scale solar generation.
