Rye Park Wind Farm

The Rye Park Wind Farm project was initially developed by Epuron beginning in 2008, when the first monitoring mast was installed. Trustpower acquired the project from Epuron in 2014.

The Rye Park Wind Farm is located to the north of Yass and east of Boorowa, New South Wales, on the edge of the Southern Tablelands and the South West Slopes in the vicinity of the township of Rye Park.

Planning approval

The Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Rye Park Wind Farm was lodged with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) in March 2014. A copy of the EA can be found here.

Since acquiring the project in 2014 Tilt Renewables undertook extensive additional site investigations and community and stakeholder consultation. As a result, a number of changes were made to the layout including a reduction in the number of turbines from 126 to 109 and refining the locations of a number of turbines, access tracks, powerlines and associated infrastructure.

A Response to Submissions report was lodged with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) which was placed on public exhibition from 18 May 2016 to 23 June 2016. A copy of the RTS can be downloaded here.

The Project has recently received planning approval for up to 92 turbines from the Development Assessment Panel. A copy of the final approval and conditions can be downloaded here.

EPBC referral

A Referral (reference EPBC 2014/7163) for the project under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) was submitted to the Australian Government Department of the Environment (the Department) in March 2014.

The Minister determined on 24 April 2014 that the project was a controlled action and would be subject to assessment by Preliminary Documentation and approval under the EPBC Act.

The Preliminary Documentation report was submitted for publication under section 95A(3) of the EPBC Act.  The publication process allows for public consultation on the potential biodiversity impacts of the project.

To download the report and accompanying documentation please follow following link click here

The Preliminary Documentation report will also be available for viewing for a period of 20 business days at the Hilltops Council office, 6-8 Market Street, Boorowa

Community Consultative Committee

New Zealand

Kaiwera Downs

Kaiwera Downs Wind Farm is an exciting wind generation project, proposed for farmland located south east of Gore in the South Island. Resource Consents for the project were granted in late 2008. The consents allow for the construction of up to 83 wind turbines or 240MW of capacity.

Location
18km south-east of Gore, Southland

Max capacity
Up to 240MW

Mahinerangi Wind Farm — Stage 2

Mahinerangi Wind Farm lies 7km north of Lake Mahinerangi, in the South Island of New Zealand. Stage one was commissioned in 2011. Resource Consents were granted in 2009 to allow for the construction of up to 100 wind turbines or 200MW of capacity, so there is significant opportunity to expand the development from the 12 turbine Stage 1 project, at some point. When complete, the wind farm will potentially have an average annual output over 600GWh, helping to meet New Zealand’s future energy needs.

Location
50km west of Dunedin, Otago  

Max capacity
Up to 160MW

Waverley Wind Farm

The proposed Waverley Wind Farm project is located approximately 6km south-east of Patea and 7km south-west of Waverley, in South Taranaki. Our vision is up to construct up to 48 wind turbines, with a total capacity of up to 130MW. We have recently submitted our resource consent applications to the relevant authorities and will continue to engage with the community and stakeholders throughout this process.

Location
Near Waverley, South Taranaki

Max capacity
Up to 130MW
