Clean energy for NSW
Alectown Wind Farm is a 120 MW wind farm proposed by Neoen in the Alectown and Peak Hill area in New South Wales.
The electricity generated will be supplied directly into the national electricity grid through a proposed connection into the 132 kV Parkes to Wellington transmission line.
Wind turbines are tall structures that can capture stronger winds at higher altitudes. Turbines are generally 150-270m in height.
The Alectown Wind Farm will be located approximately 7.8 km east of Alectown, 7.3 km south-east of Trewilga, 22 km north-east of Parkes and 15 km south east of Peak Hill, within the Parkes Local Government Area (LGA). The Proposal also borders the Cabonne LGA.
The project will be located on six freehold landholdings adjacent to the Goobang National Park. The turbines will be installed on the tops of the ridges on these freehold properties, which comprise of sections of Hervey Ranges, Curumbenya Ranges and Crokers Range.
