DP Energy Australia is forging ahead with the development of the 700MW Euston Wind Farm project, situated in New South Wales within the Balranald Local Government Area. Recently, the developer received the Secretary's Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, marking a crucial milestone on the path to securing development approval (DA).
Located within the South-West Renewable Energy Zone (SW-REZ), the Euston Wind Farm project is poised to play a pivotal role in New South Wales' commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. The project's primary objective is to generate a substantial amount of clean electricity, with the potential to power up to 324,903 households. This ambitious endeavor will feature approximately 100 wind turbines and a cutting-edge Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).
DP Energy Australia's Head of Projects, Hugh Cantwell, expressed his enthusiasm about this significant development, stating, “The receipt of the SEARs marks a key milestone in the Euston Wind Farm project. We are excited to be moving forward with this quality project, which aligns seamlessly with the New South Wales Government's vision of transforming the electricity system into one that is not only affordable but also clean and reliable.”
