AGL Energy set to build wind farm in SA  

AGL Energy is set to build another wind farm in South Australia.

The 71 megawatt wind farm will be situated at Hallett Hill, 170 kilometre north of Adelaide, and will have a total development cost of about $166 million.

The project will create 150 jobs during the construction phase, and will be the third wind farm under the management of AGL.

The farm is expected to become commercially operational around November 2009.

AGL managing director Michael Fraser said the project reinforced the leadership position the company was taking in Australia’s renewable energy sector.

“The Hallett Hill wind farm will significantly add to AGL’s capability to self-supply its renewable generation needs and the operation of all three wind farms will supply a substantial component of AGL’s obligations under the federal government’s mandatory renewable energy target scheme,” Mr Fraser said.

“Hallet Hill would also be eligible to supply renewable energy under the New South Wales government’s proposed scheme or proposed new federal schemes.

“When commissioned in 2009, the wind farm will provide enough renewable energy to power 40,000 average Australian households and abate approximately 250,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.”
