Bango Wind Farm
A proposed wind farm in the Southern Tablelands of NSW
Positive effect on the local economy
Creating value & opportunities through renewable energy
Bango Wind Farm is a proposed development of up to 71 wind turbines and associated infrastructure on agricultural land approximately 45 km north of Yass, NSW. The site is well suited to wind generation due to its reliable wind resource, low density of rural residential dwellings and proximity to existing transmission infrastructure.
Bango Wind Farm will play an important role in increasing competition in the energy sector and reducing the market reliance on fossil fuel generation.
The proposed project capacity is approximately 150 MW, which would generate enough energy for over 64,000 homes* and would save over 375,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year.
*(Based on an average NSW household electricity consumption of 7.3 MWh annually.)
