Clean Energy for Queensland

Sharing Benefits

Making a difference in local communities


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 proposed capacity is up to 700MW.


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


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

Mount Hopeful Wind Farm


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.



Regional economic boost during construction period plus a number of ongoing jobs

Let us know what you think.

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.
