Uungula WIND FARM

Proposed Benefits

Uungula Wind Farm (UWF) will play an important role in contributing to the increasing local and global need for renewable projects to tackle the issues of Global Warming and Climate Change; contributing additional renewable energy generation to meet the legislated Australian target of 20% by 2020. If all turbines in the proposed wind farm are built, the carbon emissions saved would be the equivalent of taking over 5.8 million cars off the road each year and the electricity produced equivalent to supplying almost 180,000 average homes1 with clean renewable electricity. 

A 249 wind turbine UWF would create as many as 480 full time equivalent construction jobs with the workforce possibly spending up to $12 million locally. The indirect employment benefit created by construction of the project could be as many as 1,500 jobs.

During operation of the wind farm, around 48 full time equivalent positions would be created in order to run and maintain the wind turbines. The wind farm operations and maintenance team could spend as much as $1.2 million a year locally and the staff are likely to live locally. The employment benefit created by the operation of the wind farm could support an additional 120 indirect jobs.

Local farmers would be paid around $2.1 million dollars a year to have the wind farm on their land.  Several farmers have mentioned that this income could be used to employ staff and fund additional farm management programs.

Our developments include the establishment of a Community Fund. The purpose of the Fund is to provide support for the local community to develop, maintain, and enhance facilities, amenities, projects and activities in the region. The Community Fund can be administered by local community representatives with assistance from the local council and is usually established around the time that the wind farm begins producing electricity.
