Final State Government approval has been given for the construction of a $900 million, 105-turbine wind farm in South Australia.

The 315 megawatt Hornsdale wind farm, to be built 15km from Jamestown, would be the state’s largest, with the capacity to generate 1,050,000 megawatt hours of electricity a year.

The Development Assessment Commission gave provisional approval to the development in May, with Planning Minister John Rau yesterday giving developer Investec Bank Australia the green light to begin the development.

Energy Minister Tom Koutsantonis said the project would create up to 250 construction jobs locally.
