Hallett Wind Farms

Creating a better future for everyone with clean energy and lower greenhouse gases.

The Hallett Wind Farms can generate enough clean energy to power around 202,000 average Australian homes and save approximately 770,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year.

Four separate wind farms make up the Hallett Wind Farms near the towns of Hallett and Burra in South Australia.

The Hallett Wind Farms comprise 166 Suzlon S88 wind turbines and one S97 wind turbine together with infrastructure such as substations and connection assets to allow the export of clean energy to the grid.


Approximately 180 kilometres north of Adelaide, the farming properties that host the wind farms are predominantly used for crops.

Community Fund

As a major employer and investor in the region, AGL strives to make a positive contribution to the communities around the Hallett Wind Farms. The Hallett Wind Farm Community Fund has been designed to support the surrounding community in the mid north of South Australia.

The Community Fund opens once a year to support local community initiatives and/or activities and is delivered in partnership with the Regional Council of Goyder and Northern Areas Council. Since construction of the wind farms AGL has invested more than $1 million into the community through the Fund.
