The Minister for Planning has approved the planning applications for the proposed Stockyard Hill Wind Farm.
Stockyard Hill Wind Farm recognises the importance of community consultation and encourages the community to have their say...
Stockyard Hill Wind Farm will contribute a sustainable form of energy to the national electricity market.
In early 2014 Origin commenced discussions with the community about the possibility of increasing the turbine tip height from 132 to a maximum 165 metres. In considering the discussions and proposals put forward by turbine manufacturers it has become clear there have been continued advances in turbine technology that would result in improved wind farm performance and output.
Origin has now determined to seek a Planning Permit Amendment that would allow a maximum wind turbine tip height of 180 metres. For further information view the latest community newsletter.
