Plans for Badgingarra wind farm  

Griffin Energy plans to build one of the State’s largest wind farms at Badgingarra.

Griffin Energy executive general manager power generation Wayne Trumble said the proposal would provide up to 130MW of clean, green power to meet growing demand for electricity

Mr Trumble said the Badgingarra Wind Farm project would be an important element of a balanced energy mix for the State.

“We are already making a significant contribution to a balanced supply through the nearby Emu Downs Wind Farm,” he said.

“The Badgingarra project will build on our experience to deliver a new source of renewable energy and an important economic boost to the region.”

Mr Trumble said the wind farm would be subject to a community consultation period, ahead of seeking planning approval.

“We expect that, like Emu Downs Wind Farm, this project will provide fantastic local opportunities, such as job creation, training programs, community partnerships, increased economic activity and a new tourism attraction for the region,” he said.

“We now want to work with the community to maximise those opportunities.”

Discussions have already been held with relevant land owners and a series of community meetings are scheduled for both Badgingarra and Cervantes at the end of this month.
