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.
Origin is preparing an application to amend the Permit for Stockyard Hill Wind Farm to increase the maximum height of the turbines from 132 metres to 165 meters.
This does not necessarily increase the wind turbine generator capacity (as compared to the turbines allowed under the existing permit specifications) but rather allows an increased tower height and rotorblade size to better capture the wind energy.
Origin will continue to provide project updates to the community.
