Proposed Coopers Gap Wind Farm

Under the Electricity Act 1994 (PDF, 1.3MB), the Regulator (i.e. the Director-General of the Department of Energy and Water Supply) issues authorities (licences) for generation, transmission and distribution activities in Queensland’s electricity industry.

When an applicant applies for a generation authority to connect generating plant with capacity greater than 30 megawatts (MW) to a transmission grid or supply network, the Regulator must invite interested persons to make submissions about the application.

What is proposed

The proposed Coopers Gap Wind Farm is a 460MW power station to be located in the Bilboa and Cooranga North region, approximately 50km south-west of Kingaroy and 65km north of Dalby. The Regulator is seeking feedback from interested persons with regards to issuing AGL Hydro Partnership (the operator of the proposed generator) a generation authority for the Coopers Gap Wind Farm.

Further details are available in the Application for electricity generation authority: AGL Hydro Partnership for the Coopers Gap Wind Farm information paper (PDF, 385.9KB).
