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 and the project is being constructed in stages.
Stage 1 of the project consists 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 early 2018.
Stage 2 of the project will consist of up to 48 turbines, producing up to 202 MW of clean renewable electricity. It is anticipated that construction of Stage 2 will commence in late 2018.
