New power source may be in the wind for Barkly region  

Remote communities in the Northern Territory’s Barkly region may be the next to make the switch to wind power.

The Power and Water Corporation has been considering proposals from three companies about the development of a wind farm in Tennant Creek.

The corporation’s sustainable energy manager, Trevor Horman, says they are now looking further east.

“We’ve examined the expressions of interest and in the light of a new environment, they’re not looking as prospective as they were when we first got them,” he said.

“However, we’re still looking at wind in the Barkly Tableland because there’s a lot of wind down there, but it’s more likely to stack up in a business case in the remote communities on the Barkly Tableland.”
