Lacour Energy is developing the Clarke Creek Wind and Solar Farm project which located 150km north west of Rockhampton and 150km south of Mackay in the Isaac Shire and Livingstone Shire areas. The project is currently in feasibility phase and if constructed, will comprise up to 195 wind turbines and 200 MW of solar panels and a battery facility.
The project extends across the land of eight local families, with the wind turbines located on the mountain range and the solar farm on the lower ground near the Marlborough-Sarina Road. The project is in an area of high wind and solar resources and close to an existing main road from Marlborough to Sarina. The project is also adjacent to the existing high voltage electricity transmission network, with three large transmission lines providing the ability to connect the large power project we are developing.
The project is currently in the feasibility phase with work being undertaken on the technical,
environmental, social and economic aspects of the project. If the feasibility demonstrates a viable project then it is intended that construction would commence in 2019.
