The CEFC has committed $5 million to the Blind Creek project, a farmer-led project that combines an understanding of the land, farming practices, and knowledge of the local community with renewable energy expertise. The CEFC investment is part of a joint venture between the CEFC and Octopus Australia to develop and deliver a utility-scale agri-solar and battery project in regional Australia.

The project was founded by local farmers with a multi-generational connection to the site and to the local community, together with a team of renewable energy experts, including technical support from Stride Renewables and Axcentium. The characteristics of the project reflect their vision to co-locate regenerative agriculture with solar, engage in genuine community consultation, and include the community in the project’s financial benefits.
