Gullen Range Wind Farm
The Gullen Range Wind Farm is located in the Southern Tablelands, NSW on the
Great Dividing Range. It comprises a moderate size wind farm that at full output can generate
165.5MW of electricity from a renewable energy source. The power produced is enough to
supply 60,000 homes and is achieved with the benefit of delivering significant emissions
savings equivalent to over 3 million tonnes of greenhouse gases by 2020.
