Cattle Creek Wind Farm

RWE Renewables Australia respectfully acknowledges the Bigambul people, the Traditional Owners of the lands where the Cattle Creek Wind Farm is proposed, and pay our respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.

The proposal

RWE Renewables Australia is working on developing a renewable energy project near Cattle Creek, in southern Queensland’s Toowoomba Regional Council.

The proposed project would incorporate a wind farm with about 140 wind turbines, with the final number subject to the outcomes of various specialist studies. A battery energy storage system will also be included as part of the project.

If constructed, the Cattle Creek Wind Farm could generate enough electricity to power more than 525,000 homes, the equivalent of powering all private dwellings in the Toowoomba Regional Council and Western Downs Regional Council about five times over.

Cattle Creek is located 110 kilometres west of Toowoomba and 50 kilometres north-west of Millmerran. The project investigation area consists of about 20,000 hectares, with the potential development footprint expected to occupy less than three per cent of this area. The project land is mainly used for cattle grazing, which can continue if the project is constructed and becomes operational.

The project is currently in the early stages of planning and development, and a development application is expected to be submitted late 2024.

We will update the community with information along the way through newsletters, community drop-in sessions and other forms of engagement.

RWE is committed to prioritising the use of regional Queensland businesses and employees throughout the development, construction and operation of the project. As the project progresses throughout the planning and development phase, we will create a register on this site to enable expressions of interest for the provision of goods and services during construction.

Construction of the project is expected to take two to three years and require a workforce of about 500 people at peak periods.

We are also committed to sharing the benefits of renewable energy with the communities where our projects operate. As the project progresses we will explore the development of a Sponsorship Fund and later a Community Benefit Fund, both of which will be tailored to the local community’s needs.

Project status: Development – undertaking studies, preparing potential layouts, seeking community feedback

Operation: Targeting 2028 for initial operations
