Approval for $250m wind farm in Australia

Construction on a 315 MW wind farm in Australia will begin next year after it won development approval.

The $250m Hornsdale wind farm is being developed by French company Neoen and will be located in the South Australia near the town of Jamestown.

South Australia's Climate Change Minister Ian Hunter said the project was one of many in the pipeline arising from a focus on increasing renewable energy.

“Around the world there is fierce competition for the billions of dollars of investment available for renewable projects,” he said. “Projects such as the Hornsdale Wind Farm help us generate energy from clean, renewable sources.”

Hunter added that the government is committed to ensuring South Australia fully capitalises on the opportunities of transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
