Uungula Wind Farm
A proposed wind farm in the central western ranges of NSW.
Making a significant contribution to the local community and economy of the Wellington region.
Creating value & opportunities through renewable energy
Uungula Wind Farm is a proposed development of up to 117 wind turbines and associated infrastructure on agricultural land approximately 14 km east of Wellington, NSW. The site is well suited to wind generation due to its reliable wind resource, low density of rural residential dwellings and proximity to existing transmission infrastructure.
Uungula Wind Farm will play an important role in increasing competition in the energy sector and reducing the market reliance on fossil fuel generation.
The proposed project capacity is approximately 400 MW, which would generate enough energy for over 170,500 homes* and would save over a million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year.
*(Based on an average NSW household electricity consumption of 7.3 MWh annually.)
