Port Latta Wind Farm

Port Latta Wind Farm will consist of up to seven wind turbines and have an installed capacity of up to 25 MW. The wind farm is expected to generate up to 90 GWh every year.  90 GWh energy generation is the equivalent of supplying the energy needs of 9,000 average Tasmanian households. The wind farm will be connected via underground cable to TasNetwork’s Port Latta substation which is less than one kilometre away.

The Project has development approval from the Circular Head Council and the Tasmanian Environment Protection Authority.  It has been referred to the Commonwealth under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and was deemed to be ‘not a controlled action’.

The Project is currently finalising a Connection Agreement with TasNetworks and is investigating financing arrangements.
