Support Ocean Hydro
Supplying 100% of Sunshine Coast electricity needs via Hydroelectricity from the East Australian Current (EAC).
Ten gigawatts of 24/7 free energy flows along our coast . That’s 3 times more energy than the entire sunshine coast consumes (That’s energy, not just electricity, and includes coal + gas + oil).
Noosa Hydro is an undersea hydroelectricity farm. It is based 88km offshore near the peak current flow, and is environmentally safe for all marine creatures and users.
We need your help! To unlock upto $450M in Clean-Energy financing and install our first turbines, we need funding and professional services to conform to government CEFC low-risk investment rules.
Did you know: on average, solar panels produce their rated output for only 4 hours per day.
The EAC flows continuously, day and night.
