Project overview

The Project

The Project will comprise between 75-85 wind turbines, each with a maximum blade tip height of 230 metres and with a combined capacity of around 550 megawatts (MW). The project is expected to generate enough clean, renewable wind energy to power almost 300,000 average NSW homes.

The wind farm will deliver renewable, low-cost energy to the national grid and contribute to the NSW Government’s Net Zero emissions target by 2050. The Project will provide a significant amount of the new generation capacity required as coal-fired power stations are retired over the next decade.
