Hughenden is set to be the site of Australia’s first hybrid wind and solar energy park.

Windlab Ltd, a company that originally planned to feed electricity generated by wind turbines into the failed CopperString power project in 2012, is back with a new $140 million power proposal.

Kennedy Energy Park project director Geoff Burns said Windlab, in joint partnership with Japanese company Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation, planned to build Australia’s first combined wind and solar “energy park” at a site 17km southeast of Hughenden.
