King Island Renewable Energy

To date Hydro Tasmania has achieved some promising results with the increased utilisation of renewable energy in the Bass Strait. On King Island, Hydro Tasmania has successfully reduced fuel use by 45%, largely via the use of wind turbines. Currently the system can be operated with wind power supplying up to 70% of instantaneous customer demand. This has reduced diesel consumption from 4.5 million litres to around 2.6 million litres per annum.
