The Prairie Wind Farm is a proposed wind energy project that will generate up to 800MW of power from about 100 turbines, located on pastoral land near the rural township of Prairie, about 300km south-west of Townsville, Queensland.

Once operational, the project will have the capacity to provide clean, renewable electricity to meet the needs of one in every six households in Queensland.

Connecting to the proposed CopperString line or similar transmission infrastructure, the project will coexist with the region’s agricultural industry, deliver important benefits to local communities and play a key role in supporting Queensland’s critical decarbonisation objectives.
