Capital 2 Wind Farm
The proposed Capital 2 Wind Farm is located near Bungendore in New South Wales and would be co-located with the existing Capital and Woodlawn Wind Farms. The proposed 143.5 MW wind farm will comprise 41 wind turbines which will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 85,400 homes each year.
Development Approval for the project was granted in 2011. A Staging Plan (under Condition A13 of the Development Approval) was lodged with the DPIE in March 2018.
The Capital 2 Community Consultative Committee will be established prior to commencement of construction of the wind farm.
A Community Fund will be payable as a Development Contribution once the project commences construction. This was agreed with Palerang Council via a Voluntary Planning Agreement in 2014 and commits to a contribution of $20,000 per wind turbine to be installed at Capital 2 Wind Farm. The Development Contribution will be payable in 3 stages once construction commences and the distribution of funds will be managed by Palerang Council.
Flyers Creek Wind Farm
The proposed Flyers Creek Wind Farm is located 20 km south west of Orange in New South Wales. The proposed 144.4 MW wind farm will comprise 38 wind turbines which will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 86,000 homes.
The Flyers Creek Wind Farm development is located close to large electricity load, with a compelling wind resource, in one of the nation’s most opportunity rich electricity markets, New South Wales.
Development Approval for the project was granted in 2014.
The Flyers Creek Wind Farm Community Consultative Committee (CCC) was established in 2012 and generally meets quarterly. Members include residents local to the proposed wind farm.
A Community Fund will be available once the project commences construction. This was agreed with Blayney Shire Council in a Voluntary Planning Agreement in 2014 and commits to a contribution of approximately $107,000 each year for 25 years. Distribution of the Community Fund will be managed by Blayney Shire Council.
Forsayth Wind Farm
The proposed Forsayth Wind Farm is located in the Newcastle Range in far North Queensland, 45 km south east of Georgetown and 5 km east of Forsayth. The proposed 150 MW wind farm will comprise up to 30 wind turbines which will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 89,300 homes. The connection is proposed via the Ergon 132 kV Georgetown to Ross transmission line.
Woakwine Wind Farm
The proposed Woakwine Wind Farm is located along the same ridgeline as Iberdrola Australia's Lake Bonney Wind Farm. The proposed 274 MW wind farm will comprise up to 76 wind turbines which will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 163,200 homes each year.
Development Approval for the project was granted in 2012 by Wattle Range Council under the Development Act 1993.
Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park (PAREP)
Occupying approximately 5,400 hectares of land, the Port Augusta Renewable Energy Park (PAREP) is located 8 km south-east of Port Augusta in South Australia. Comprised of 50 wind turbines and 250,000 solar modules, the site will have a total installed capacity of almost 320 megawatts (MW) of clean renewable energy. The onsite 275kV substation and export cable will connect into the South Australian transmission network, via the Davenport substation. 180,000 homes can be powered thanks to the production of 900 gigawatt hours (GWh) per annum, saving of approximately 400,000 metric tonnes of CO2 emission annually.
