Hallett, SA, set for fourth wind farm  

A fourth wind-farm site planned near Hallett, South Australia, will make the State’s Mid North the hub of mainland wind farm investment in Australia.

But the proposal is already dividing the local community.

Situated on North Brown Hill about 23 kilometres from Hallett, the Hallett 4 wind farm development by energy company AGL and wind energy developer Wind Prospect, consists of 63 turbines with a capacity of up to 189 megawatts – making it the largest wind farm in the Hallett group.

AGL managing director Michael Fraser said if it proceeds, the Hallett 4 wind farm would see the company operating over 232 wind turbines in South Australia with a combined capacity of over 460mw by 2011.

“AGL anticipates that, when fully operational, the Hallett 4 wind farm will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 67,000 average Australian households and avoid up to 346,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year,” he said.
