Junction Rivers Wind Energy project is an exciting project located 15 km south of Balranald, 10km north of Kyalite and 24km north of Tooleybuc in New South Wales.
The proposed project could host up to 96 wind turbines and produce enough clean energy to power up to 434,000 homes. The proposed project may also include a battery energy storage system.
Developing the high-quality wind resource at the site would diversify the local economy and generate significant investment in the broader Balranald and Murray River area in a way that is compatible with existing agricultural activities.
The project is being developed by Windlab, an Australian company that applies Australian science to find, construct and operate high performing wind farms in Australia and around the world. The communities that host our projects are lifelong stakeholders and the Windlab approach to project development is founded both in science and a desire to be welcomed by the host community.
A Scoping Study has been submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). This is a significant milestone for the project and Windlab thanks residents and businesses in the Balranald and Kyalite area for participating in early consultation for the Scoping Study.
The consultation has provided valuable early input into identifying opportunities and constraints for the proposal. Windlab will now undertake comprehensive technical, environmental and social studies which, together with input from ongoing consultation, will shape the development of Burrawong Wind Farm.
