Epuron is investigating the elevated plateau to the south of Burnie in the Surrey Hills Estate area, just south of the Surrey Hills Mill. These ridges have strong wind speeds and are currently used for forestry plantation operations. There are very few residences in the area which means the potential for noise and other impacts to residences are minimised.
The Guildford Wind Farm is to be located further to the south of the site.
The map below shows the wind prospecting area as well as the location of existing 110,000 volt (pink) and 220,000 volt (purple) transmission lines which cross the area. Nearby substations are also shown.
