The Tasmanian Government, Aurora Energy and Goldwind have reached a principle agreement that will see a $300 million, 49 turbine wind farm developed at Wild Cattle Hill in the Central Highlands.

Once complete, the wind farm will generate 144 MW, enough to power over 60,000 homes and increase wind generation capacity in Tasmania by nearly 50 per cent.

Minister for Energy, Matthew Groom, said, “This is a massive investment for Tasmania, which will create 150 jobs during construction and around 10 ongoing jobs once construction is complete in 2020.  

“The Hodgman Government will back the development of new renewable generation like Wild Cattle Hill because it will create jobs and grow the economy in regional Tasmania.”
