Wind Farm Feasibility
Wind Farm Project
Our initial project, to investigate the feasibility of a 10MW wind farm to be located in the Scott River area, has now moved forward significantly.
AMRCCE contracted Merz Consulting to prepare the technical planning and information required to submit a Connection Application to Western Power and that Connection Application has now finally been made. Following analysis of the wind data and advice from the consultants, we have applied for approval for our projected turbine output to feed up to 22.5MW of power into the Beenup substation at Scott River which is more than double our original target of gaining approval for a 10MW Grid Connected wind farm. We are now moving to the next part of the project which involves finding a suitable partner to develop the wind farm providing our community with a share-holding to fund ongoing projects to reduce the emissions from energy consumption by the community.
- 22.5 MW Grid Connected
- ~60% Energy consumed through the grid
- ~50,000 tonnes of CO2/reduction per year
- ~$30 Million
Achieved to date
- Land Access Agreements
- Wind Data
- WP Application
- Concept Planning Proposal drafted
