Mumbil Solar & Wind

The opportunity for renewable energy speaks loud and clear!

The Mumbil NSW area has both an excellent wind and solar resource coupled with strong existing electrical infrastructure. This makes the area the perfect location for a wind farm, solar farm or a combination of both.

The advantages of co-locating wind and solar energy includes:

  • Complementary activity of wind at night and solar by day.
  • Shared connection to into the existing electricity grid.

Project outline

The site is located about 15 kilometres south of Wellington is expected to support a capacity of 100-200MW of combined wind and solar generation.

The site is currently used for sheep grazing. Wind farm and solar farms provide for multiple land use so there will be the opportunity to continue agricultural use in conjunction with the wind farm and solar farm.
