Broken Hill - The Future Of Renewables
Broken Hill is a vibrant and thriving outback city that has positioned itself at the forefront of the renewable energy sector. With vast open swaths of land, perfect light, and strong desert winds, our surrounds offer boundless opportunities for savvy energy developers.
Around the world cities are setting targets and creating strategies to become renewable. For many the goal of getting 100% of their energy from renewable sources is decades away. Broken Hill is there!.
AGL's Broken Hill Solar Plant (the second largest installation of its kind in Australia) feeds enough energy into the grid each year to power the city's residential power needs more than two and a half times over. The planned Silverton Wind Farm, also an AGL initiative, will further bolster the region's renewable industry by generating up to six times the amount of electricity that the solar plant produces.
