The 67-turbine Capital wind farm, near Bungendore, east of Canberra, will be opened on Wednesday, November 18.
The wind farm will have a capacity of 140.7 megawatts – more than five times the size of the next largest wind farm in New South Wales. The majority of its output will be used to power Sydney’s desalination plant.
With the opening of the new wind farm, its owner, Infigen Energy will have four operational wind farms in Australia, another one under construction and twelve in the pipeline.
Infigen is selling wind farms in the United Staes, Germany and France in order to focus on providing renewable energy in Australia.
