Verve plans WA’s biggest wind farm
State-owned Verve Energy is seeking approval for a 250 megawatt, $600 million wind farm in the Mid West of WA.
Verve has lodged documents with the WA Environment Protection Authority for the Warradarge wind farm, which would include 100 turbines, produce sufficient power for 140,000 homes and save 700,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
The project would have a start date of 2014 and be constructed in three phases through to 2020.
At 250 megawatt, Warradarge would overtake privately owned Collgar as the largest wind farm in WA.
The project would take renewable energy in WA from 9 percent of total generation to around 12 percent.
Verve is also working on a 55 megawatt wind farm near Geraldton.
