The Waterfall Way rises from the coast at Coffs Harbour to the top of the Great Dividing Range at Armidale, passing rainforest, river valleys and waterfalls along the way. It may soon have a new attraction in the form of the Doughboy Wind Farm, benefiting from the strong winds that pass over the ranges.
Epuron is exploring an area east of Armidale that seems suitable for a wind farm because:
- there is a good wind resource
- the area has existing high voltage (330kV) transmission lines suitable for connection
- a wind farm would complement the existing land use (grazing) on the site
For the past two years we have monitored wind in the area with positive results. We are now conducting detailed site investigations prior to preparing a Development Application.
We are keen to engage with the local community for input to help shape the project and maximise community benefits.
