As a Hostplus member, your savings are invested in a broad range of assets, including major infrastructure projects across Australia and around the world.¹
These are nation-building assets that positively contribute to our standard of living and way of life, while aiming to grow your super at the same time.
In fact, Hostplus invests close to $9 billion in infrastructure assets, including renewable energy, innovative waste solutions, seaports and airports.
The Australian-based Tilt Renewables is one of those assets.
Tilt Renewables was established in partnership with AGL Energy to drive the development of large-scale renewable energy projects. It's currently Australia’s largest renewable energy business (by operational capacity).
Tilt Renewables generates enough renewable energy to power more than 450,000 average Australian homes each year. The company's two windfarms and two solar farms are helping Australia’s transition to a more sustainable energy future.
Their impressive Silverton Wind Farm in NSW (pictured) was completed in May 2020 and is now generating at full capacity. The 58 turbines are expected to generate approximately 780,000 megawatt hours of clean, renewable electricity each year, which can power the equivalent of around 98,000 homes each year.
Tilt Renewables' soon-to-be-completed Coopers Gap Wind Farm, a 1,510,000 megawatt-hour wind farm in the Western Downs and South Burnett regions of Queensland, will be one of the largest in Australia. Once completed, Coopers Gap will power the equivalent of 232,000 homes each year.
