Jupiter Wind Farm

An Australian and Spanish joint venture, EPYC Pty Ltd, is proposing to construct the Jupiter Wind Farm, which will have the potential to generate up to 350 megawatts of electricity, in the Southern Tablelands region of NSW, approximately 40 kilometres from Goulburn and 6 kilometres south-east of the Tarago township.

The site extends south along the Braidwood-Goulburn Road and beyond the Kings Highway. It is situated across two Local Government Areas: Goulburn Mulwaree and Palerang.

The proposed wind farm will consist of 88 turbines, as well as a substation and control room, and will have a capital cost of about $300 million.

The proposal has met with resistance from neighbouring farmers and residents. In particular, residents have been concerned about the size of the turbines, which are proposed to be 110 metres high, with 63-metre-wide rotor blades.

In October 2015, the NSW Department of Planning and Environment ruled that the project’s developers had failed to adequately assess the visual and noise impacts of the turbines, or to properly consult with local residents. The Department said that the project visualy impacts about 20 homes.

EPYC has resubmitted a revised proposal which is open for submission until February 2017.

Once approved, it is expected that final planning and construction of the wind farm would take about two and a half years.

The proposal has been hugely contentious in the small town of Tarago. The Australian Wind Alliance is a supporter of wind energy, but has opposed this proposal, arguing that the company behind the proposal "has not developed the wind farm in a manner that sufficiently benefits the wider community".

The project application was withdrawn in March 2018.
