Travel 25 kilometres south off the Great Eastern Highway between Merredin and Burracoppin to drive through one of the largest wind farms in Australia. An interpretive display shelter is located on Bulls Head Road which provides information on the project.
Collgar Wind Farm is a site of 18,000 hectares and contains 111 turbines which generate enough power to supply 125,000 homes. It will displace 700,000 tonnes of carbon which is equivalent to taking 160,000 cars off the road each year, making a major contribution to Western Australia’s greenhouse gas reductions. It is the largest wind farm in Western Australia and the largest single stage wind farm development in the southern hemisphere to date.
The project location was selected for its unique topography, world class wind resource, favourable community rapport and proximity to the power grid.
