The Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park (PAREP) is a combined wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) hybrid project. It is one of the southern hemisphere's largest hybrid renewable energy power stations.
Located approximately 8 km south-east of Port Augusta in South Australia, the project will occupy approximately 5,400 hectares of land running from Port Paterson in the north, to Winninowie in the south and span the A1 Augusta Highway.
It comprises 50 wind turbines and 250,000 solar modules together with associated infrastructure, with a total installed capacity of almost 320 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy. A 275kV substation and export cable connects the project into the South Australian transmission network.
