Construction in late 2024

Up to 906MW of wind

Located within the South-West Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) in NSW, the Keri Keri Renewable Energy Project is a proposed project of up to 906MW of wind, with potential for up to 100-200MW Solar PV and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in future. The project is within the Murray River Shire LGA and sits across 18,000 hectares of pastoral land.

 

The proposed Keri Keri Renewable Energy Project is located due south of the Willowvale Rest Area, abutting the Sturt Highway and Keri Keri Road. The planned Project EnergyConnect NSW/SA Interconnector is proposed to cross the southern portion of the 18,000ha site.

 

The wind farm represents an investment of up to $1.68 billion. The solar PV and BESS component of the project represent an additional ∼$150 million investment by ACCIONA Energía.

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Project Configuration: up to 159 wind turbine generators based on 5.7MW machine
  • Location: Murray River Shire, NSW. The project is approximately 80km west of Hay
  • Capacity: up to to 906MW, with potential for up to 100-200MW solar PV and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)
  • Construction Commencement: anticipated commencement of construction in late 2024
  • Project Value: up to $1.68 billion investment for the wind farm, and additional ∼$150 million for solar PV and BESS

KEY FEATURES

The land is situated in a remote area characterised by very large pastoral landholdings. The proposed project site is very flat, with good access to transport infrastructure.  The project boundary encompasses more than 18,000 ha of land, which is currently predominately used for merino sheep farming.
