A new wind farm to be built near Ravenshoe is set to create up to 150 jobs in Far North Queensland during construction.
The $380 million Kaban Green Power Hub will be built by Neoen Energy, with CleanCo announcing on Monday they will buy the farm's 110 megawatts of output.
Neoen Australia's managing director Louis de Sambucy said Kaban marked the second time they had worked with CleanCo and Powerlink on an energy project.
"This agreement underscores our deepening involvement in the state's clean energy transition, and we are proud to be supporting Queensland's progress towards its ambitious target of 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030, " Mr Sambucy said.
The wind farm is expected to start providing power in 2023 and will generate enough energy to power about 95,900 homes.
CleanCo CEO Dr Maia Schweizer said they were proud to be involved in the project, which would continue to improve electricity affordability for Queensland.
"As demonstrated by our recent agreements with BHP and Coles, large energy users in Queensland are increasingly looking to power their businesses with affordable renewable energy, which gives us the confidence to continue to support projects like Kaban," she said.
Energy Minister Dr Anthony Lynham said affordable, reliable energy supply underpins Queensland's economic plan for post-COVID recovery.
"That plan includes supporting emerging industries like renewable energy because that supports jobs," Dr Lynham said.
"This project is proceeding because the power purchase agreement with CleanCo has given Neoen certainty."
Emergency Services Minister and Barron River MP Craig Crawford the project was another great example of publicly-owned energy businesses working for Queenslanders.
