AGL Energy plans to fast track its Macarthur wind farm project following the changes to the Renewable Energy Target scheme approved by the Senate. (See Renewable Energy Legislation Before Senate.)

AGL managing director Michael Fraser said it would give industry the certainty to make long-term investment decisions to transform the nation’s energy infrastructure. 

"With our joint venture partner Meridian Energy, AGL now plans to fast track the final approvals for the development of the Macarthur wind farm which, when completed, will be one of the largest wind farms in the southern hemisphere," he said.
