About the Project
The proposed Hills of Gold Wind Farm is located about 5km south of Hanging Rock and 8km south-east of Nundle and is contained within three Local Government Areas: Tamworth Regional Council, Upper Hunter Shire Council, and Liverpool Plains Shire Council.
The Project will involve the construction, commissioning and operation of a wind farm with up to 70 wind turbine generators and associated ancillary infrastructure to support a generating capacity of up to 420 megawatts.
Once constructed, and with the backing of ENGIE’s local and global expertise in renewable energy, the Hills of Gold Wind Farm will supply up to 1,100 gigawatt hours per annum, the equivalent energy to power 185,000 average Australian homes.
Subject to project approvals the proposed wind farm could include wind turbines as well as associated infrastructure including:
