About the wind farm
The Cullerin Range was chosen as the location for the wind farm as it has a consistent wind resource, is close to transmission lines and has safe access for construction and maintenance vehicles.
Constructed in 2007-8, from July 2009 the facility became the first significant wind farm in NSW to be fully operational in the National Electricity Market.
Being located on working farms, the Cullerin Range Wind Farm operates among traditional farming activities with landowners grazing sheep underneath the turbine towers.
The power station comprises 15 Senvion turbines, each on a tower 80m high, and each rated at a maximum output of 2MW (two megawatts could power 20,000 100W light bulbs).
The environmental benefit from the Cullerin Range Wind Farm is equivalent to taking approximately 26,000 cars off the road.
The power station is capable of generating approximately 100 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity annually, which is enough to power approximately 17,000 homes.
