Renewable energy developments
Origin is one of Australia’s largest investors in renewable energy. We are committed to finding and developing cleaner energy that will assist us in meeting the growing demand for lower carbon emissions electricity generation.
Origin owns the Cullerin Range Wind Farm, has an extensive portfolio of wind offtake agreements from other wind generators, and invests in a range of potential renewable developments for the future in Australia and further afield. Currently, Origin is progressing towards a final investment decision for Stockyard Hill Wind Farm in Victoria, which once developed would be one of the largest wind farms ever built in Australia. Origin also has significant operating geothermal and hydro generation through its 53.1 per cent interest in Contact Energy.
In addition to developing large scale renewable energy, Origin is a leading provider of low carbon energy solutions to residential and business customers. We are one of the largest installers of solar photovoltaic panels in Australia, which produce power from the sun.
In international markets, Origin is developing a select portfolio of renewable energy opportunities, such as hydro and geothermal developments in Chile and geothermal developments in Indonesia.
Origin operates a wind farm at Cullerin Range in NSW and continues to progress towards a final investment decision for Stockyard Hill Wind Farm in Victoria. When developed, this will be one of the largest wind farms ever built in Australia. Find out more information on Origin's Stockyard Hill wind farm development.

Origin is also reviewing a potential hydro opportunity in Papua New Guinea. Find out more information on Origin's hydro projects.
