Myponga Wind Farm
|Myponga Wind Farm|
|Location||South of Adelaide|
|Nameplate capacity||48 MW|
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, and the project was planned to be operational by the end of 2010.
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. 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.
The site is 400m above sea level, between the towns of Myponga and Sellicks Beach.
