OVERVIEW

The Kentbruck Green Power Hub is a proposed wind farm and battery storage project comprising up to 157 wind turbines and battery storage near the town of Nelson, Victoria.

WIND

Wind turbines are tall structures that can capture stronger winds at higher altitudes. Turbines are generally 150-270m in height.

BATTERY

Battery storage allows us to store the energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.

TRANSMISSION LINE

A transmission line is needed so that clean energy from the wind turbines can be exported to the existing network.

LOCATION

The Kentbruck Green Power Hub is located in far sothwest Victoria, approximately 330km west of Melbourne. The proposed site is around 5km from Nelson and 25km from Portland.

Neoen produce affordable reliable electricity from natural renewable sources such as the sun and wind.

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $116 million in 2019 alone !

We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.

This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice across Australia.
