AGL’s largest generation asset is the AGL Loy Yang Power Station in the Latrobe Valley in Victoria, a 2,210MW brown-coal baseload power station which accounts for around 41% of AGL’s generation capacity, and 72% of electricity generated during FY2014. 32% of the generation capacity operated by AGL during the year was renewable, as was 19% of the electricity produced.
AGL’s renewable generation during FY2014 totalled 3,952 GWh, an increase of 24% compared to FY2013.
