AGL remains committed to the Coopers Gap Wind Farm project in southern Queensland having recently submitted a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to the Office of the Co-ordinator General (OCG).

AGL’s Coopers Gap Wind Farm project manager, Neil Cooke, said submitting the EIS is another step forward for the project.

“We will discuss the EIS at the Community Consultative Committee (CCC) meeting on Thursday 25 August ahead of the OCG placing it on public exhibition, which we expect to be in mid-September. The EIS is another opportunity for the community to provide their input to the project.

The Coopers Gap Wind Farm is proposed to have approximately 100 turbines, which would produce around 1,100 GWh of renewable energy, powering more than 190,000 average Australian homes. The renewable energy produced would reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 860,000 tonnes annually, which is the equivalent of taking over 250,000 cars off the road.
