The Mount Hopeful Wind Farm is a large-scale renewable energy project proposed in Central Queensland, within the Rockhampton and Banana Shire areas.
This project will take advantage of some of the best wind resources in the state to provide affordable and clean electricity.
The project is approved for up to 97 wind turbines with the potential for battery storage. The final project capacity is expected to be around 350 MW (around 60 wind turbines).
The project is located near the towns of Mount Morgan and Bajool, and lies approximately:
- 50km south of Rockhampton
- 60km north of Biloela; and
- 70km west of Gladstone.
The project site will stretch across the municipal boundary of Rockhampton and Banana region, on land currently used for cattle grazing.
The location was selected because it is very windy and is close to electricity transmission lines.

Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.
With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. 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 in Australia.
