New South Wales Wind Farm Opens

Adding to the 50 wind farms are currently in operation around Australia, Capital Wind Farm was officially launched by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, NSW Premier Nathan Rees and Minister for Climate Change, Senator Penny Wong.

The Capital Wind Farm is the largest wind farm in New South Wales. It will boost Australia’s wind power capacity by more than 10%. The wind farm consists of 67 Suzlon S88 wind turbines that all have a rating of 2.1MW and total installed capacity is 140.7MW. The project is capable of supplying electricity to around 60,000 homes and is almost five times the size of any other wind farm in NSW. The farm will help power the new desalination plant at Kurnell.
