The Proposal

This project has been declared a major project under the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993, resulting in the Environment Protection Authority becoming one of several 'relevant regulators' for the project. The project proposal involves the construction and operation of a large-scale wind energy project in the west coast region, comprising up to 500 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a projected generating capacity of approximately 3,000 megawatts and ancillary infrastructure including a network of access roads, electrical infrastructure, and operations facilities.
