South Australia has half of the nation's installed wind power capacity. As of December 2010, South Australia has thirteen operational wind farms, with an installed capacity of 1,018 megawatts (MW). A further 184 MW of projects are under construction.
Wind farms do not emit greenhouse gases in the generation of electricity, and so wind power is considered a highly desirable form of renewable energy which assists in the reduction of the State’s reliance on coal and gas fired electricity generation.
