White Rock Wind Farm is located in the New England Tablelands approximately 20km west of Glen Innes and 40km east of Inverell. The wind farm is located at the junctions of the Glen Innes, Inverell and Guyra Shires. The wind farm is south of the Gwydir Highway.
The NSW Government has approved construction and operation of up to 119 wind turbines. This would result in up to 300 MW of renewable electricity being generated depending on the turbine model selected.
Stage 1 of the project will consist of 70 turbines, producing 175 MW of clean renewable electricity which is enough to power 75,000 homes annually. Construction of Stage 1 commenced in May 2016 and the wind farm will be operational in the latter half of 2017.
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments on the project.
