Gullen Range Wind Farm

Gullen Grange Wind Farm is located in the New South Wales Southern Highlands about 25 kilometres south of Crookwell and 20 kilometres west of Goulburn.

The wind farm comprises 73 Goldwind turbines, 56 of these are 2.5 MW turbines with 100 metre diameter rotors the other 17 turbines are 1.5 MW with 82 metre rotors. Its total capacity is 165.5 MW. A 330 kV substation connects the wind farm to the grid.

The project was originally planned by Epuron who lodged a Major Project Application in 2007. The Department of Planning and Environment approved the application in June 2009 but there were three appeals before approval was finally granted by the Land and Environment Court in August 2010.

Construction by Goldwind Australia commenced in September 2012.

The wind farm became fully operational in December 2014.

Gullen Range Wind Farm which is now jointly owned by Beijing Jingneng Clean Energy and New Gullen Range Wind Farm which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldwind Capital. The 330kV switchyard is owned by TransGrid and the power exported from the wind farm is purchased by Energy Australia.

In August 2016, Goldwind secured support from the Australian Renewable Energy Authority to develop a 10 MW solar PV plant to be co-located with the wind farm.
