Clements Gap Wind Farm


Clements Gap Wind Farm

Clements Gap Wind Farm is presently under construction and is located in the Barunga Range, South Australia near Clements Gap, some 20 minutes south of Port Pirie. The wind farm will consist of up to 45 wind turbines with a total generating capacity of 57 MW. It will provide enough electricity for up to 30,000 homes and avoid the emission of 190,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year. The Clements Gap site was chosen because of its powerful winds, easy construction access, simple grid connection, and strong community support.[1]
