Cape York wind farm may be operating next year  

A powerful wind farm proposed for Cape York, in far north Queensland, could be up and running by next year.

Windpower Queensland is in talks with the State Government about the proposal to build the farm at Archer Point, south of Cooktown.

Windpower managing director Lloyd Stumer says the popular camping and fishing site is the best place in Queensland for a wind farm.

“If we go to 30 turbines that would be 60 megawatts which would be similar to the Barron Gorge Hydro,” he said.

“It’s envisaged that we’d like to go to 120 megawatts which would be more than enough power to supply all of Cairns.”
