Wind Farm
As a renewable source of energy, wind power enables electricity to be generated without any carbon dioxide emissions. Wind farms deliver green power in a rural environment
While co-existing with the traditional pastoral land use. The Construction of a $18 million Wind Farm in the Blayney Shire is the largest of its type in Australia and only the second in New South Wales. The project consists of 15 wind turbine generators located in three groups on elevated ridges between Carcoar Dam and Mount Macquarie. The wind turbines are supported on tubular towers with a hub height of 45m and have a three bladed rotor of 47m diameter. The total wind farm capacity is 10 megawatts, which is expected to produce enough energy to supply the annual electricity usage of 3500 average Australian homes. The wind farm feeds all the electricity generated into a transmission grid and is distributed from there to greenpower customers. Blayney Shire Council has supported the development of the wind farm and recognises the benefits for the area are not only environmental. The wind farm is highly visible and the site is expected to become a tourist attraction bringing significant economic benefits to the region.

    Beautiful ginny. I think this is one of your prettier pictures. Looks like spring. There is snow on the ground here. And snow is very uncommon here.

  • ooh snow! this was middle of winter and very very dry due to no rain for months we went on after I took pics here and a sketch to Canberra [Capital of Aus] and it poured rain people said thanks to us…
