[vc_row el_class=”general-section”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Collgar Wind Farm is a $750 million renewable power project 25 km east of Merredin in Western Australia’s central wheatbelt. Merredin farmers have leased portions of their properties to Collgar Wind Farm for the largest single stage wind farm in the southern hemisphere to date.

The Collgar Wind Farm, built over a land envelope of 18,000 Ha, has 111 Vestas V90 turbines with a total generation capacity of 222 MW, generating up to 700GWh per year, enough to provide electricity to power a small city of 125,000 and 150,000 homes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Collgar Wind Farm generates and delivers clean, renewable electricity into the South West Interconnected System (SWIS) each year, thereby making a major contribution to Western Australia’s greenhouse gas reductions. These reductions are equivalent to taking 150,000 cars off the road or planting between 7 million and 9 million trees.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” el_class=”general-cta-section” css=”.vc_custom_1597930708419{background-color: #6caedf !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”42″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” el_class=”cta-icon”][vc_column_text el_class=”gcta-con center white-con”]Electricity to power a
