The Myponga Wind Farm is a wind farm project proposed by TrustPower in the southern Mount Lofty Ranges, on the Fleurieu Peninsula 50 km south of Adelaide, South Australia. Development approval was granted in 2003,[1] and the project was planned to be operational by the end of 2010.[2]

In 2009, TrustPower announced that it would not proceed with the project, because the South Australian government had not approved variations to height, layout and turbine type in the existing planning approval.[3] The requested change was to reduce the number of turbines to 16 but increase their power output and increase the height of the turbines from 100 metres to 110 metres.[4]

Location[edit]

The site is 400m above sea level, between the towns of Myponga and Sellicks Beach.
