This website is designed to provide up to date information concerning the development of the AGL Silverton Wind Farm. It provides information about the progress of AGL's project, environmental issues and our engagement initiatives in the local community.
Silverton Wind Farm has the potential to be the largest on-shore wind projects in the southern hemisphere and one of the largest in the world. With a potential operational capacity of up to 1,000MW, the wind farm could generate up to 4.5% of New South Wales' current total power consumption. This is equivalent to the energy consumption of over 430,000 NSW homes.
Silverton Wind Farm will be delivered in stages. Stage 1 will support up to 300MW of wind turbines, with the delivery of later stages dependent on additional development work and a significant upgrade to the electrical infrastructure connecting Broken Hill to Victoria.
Drawing on more than 170 years experience, AGL is looking to expand its position as Australia's leading developer of low emission and renewable energy generation. The Silverton Wind Farm is a key part of this expansion.
AGL is committed to ensuring that all of its projects are delivered in a safe and professional manner and that all feedback from interested stakeholders is addressed in a timely and effective way. AGL seeks to minimise its impact to stakeholders and the environment, and community consultation often provides ideas in how to do this.
We thank you for your interest in the project and hope you find the content of this site both helpful and informative.
The next Community Consultative Committee meeting will be held at the Silverton Youth Hall on Thursday, 27 February 2014 from 6pm to 8pm. For more information click here.
