Renewable energy

solar and wind energy

CS Energy buys wind and solar energy from projects in Queensland to support the requirements of our large commercial and industrial customers. We firm this renewables output with energy from own traditional thermal generation assets.

columboola solar farm

In FY2020 we signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 100 per cent of the output of Hana Investment's 162 MW Columboola Solar Farm.

The solar farm is being constructed near Miles in the Western Downs and will feature solar technology such as bifacial panels that absorb light from both the front and the back, and single axis trackers that follow the sun.

We'll onsell the solar energy to our customers Griffith University, CQUniversity and QUT.

Warwick Solar Farm

In early FY2021 we signed an offtake agreement to purchase a proportion of the renewable energy produced at the University of Queensland’s 64 MW Warwick Solar Farm.

We're passing the benefit of this renewable energy from the solar farm on to our Queensland Government customers, as part of our energy supply agreement with large Queensland Government sites. We're also supporting UQ’s energy ambitions through providing retail administration and hedging services. 

 

Hughenden Solar Farm

We have a PPA with BayWA r.e. for a portion of the electricity and Large Generation Certificates from its Hughenden Solar Farm.

The 20 MW Hughenden Solar Farm is located on the outskirts of Hughenden in North West Queensland and has been operational since 2018. 

We'll supply the renewable energy to our large commercial and industrial customers in Queensland.
