About Glen Innes wind farm
The Glen Innes wind farm is under development by Nexif Energy Australia Pty Ltd. The project received development approval in August 2010, and is in the final stages of development. Modifications to the approval to change the tip height to 150m were approved in January 2016. This approval will allow the wind farm to take advantage of latest wind turbine technology to harness the energy of the wind.
The site is currently used for farming, principally for cattle and sheep, and has been since the 1830s. These activities will remain unaffected by the wind farm, as the project brings together traditional and modern use of rural land areas.
