About the projects

Jim's Plain and Robbins Island Renewable Energy Parks will contribute enough electricity to power up to 500,000 typical Tasmanian homes once operational. Connecting into the National Electricity Market, these projects will contribute to Tasmanian and Australian energy generation needs, and will also support Hydro Tasmania's vision to become the Battery of the Nation. The projects are currently in planning and the first stage of development is planned to be operational by 2023.

Renewable energy is energy collected from resources that replenish naturally. These include wind and sunlight - the energy sources we're looking to collect at the Jim's Plain and Robbins Island Renewable Energy Parks.

Project timeline

We're currently finishing up the Development Applications for each renewable energy park project. We've also been exploring potential routes for the transmission line connection. We're sharing information with communities along the way.
