Solar announcement

Hepburn Wind received a grant for $500,000 dollars in November from the State Governments’ Renewable Communities Program, to develop our very own community-owned solar farm. This project will seek to implement best practice agricultural solar and improve the economies of scale for our co-operative.

Market and Financial performance

Our wind farm has benefited from increased average wind speeds (.33 m/s higher than the same time last year) taking our generation to 5,654 MWh (591 MWh higher than this time last year). This has increased our generation income, despite a drop in the value of renewable energy certificates.  Our total income at the end of December was at $1,096,663.

Updates on our partnerships

  • The Hepburn Solar Bulk Buy hit 1MW of solar ordered. There have been recent changes to the solar installer, please read the report for more details.
  • The Z-NET Hepburn Community Transition Plan (the Masterplan) will be released in the coming months, offering detailed pathways for key stakeholders in our community to stage a transition to zero-net emissions.
