The Emu Downs Wind Farm in Western Australia.
APA is investing in wind farms and solar projects
The 132-megawatt North Brown Hill Wind Farm is expected to save 355,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year for 25 years, for a total of 8,875,000 tonnes.
The 80-megawatt Emu Downs Wind Farm is expected to save 232,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year for 25 years, for a total of 5,800,000 tonnes. Co-located is the the 20-megawatt Emu Downs Solar Farm, underpinned by a Power Purchase Agreement with Western Australian energy supplier Synergy and funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

We've entered into a long-term agreementa with Alinta that will underpin our development of the 130-megawatt Badgingarra Wind Farm and the 17.5-megawatt Badgingarra Solar Farm. Both Badgingarra farma will be located adjacent to our Emu Downs farms, creating an approximately 250-megawatt renewable energy precinct.
We've entered into a long-term offtake agreement with Origin Energy to underpin our development of a 110-megawatt solar farm, near Dalby in Queensland's Darling Downs.The development is also supported by a $20 million grant from the Australian Government through the ARENA Advancing Renewables Program.
