No Tennant Creek wind farm guarantee  

The Power and Water Corporation says a proposed wind farm at Tennant Creek, in central Australia, is not a certainty.

The corporation’s sustainable energy manager, Trevor Horman, says it will depend how competitive the tenders for the project are.

He says the wind farm would provide only a portion of the town’s energy and it must be reliable.

“So there’ll be a strong requirement for the tenderers to demonstrate that whatever proposal they put forward won’t have an adverse effect on the Tennant Creek power system,” he said.

“Secondly there’s a commercial requirement, we’ll be looking to see that the cost of wind generation is not more than the current costs of generation at Tennant Creek.”
