Our environmental sustainability

Mt Millar Wind Farm comprises 35 turbines of 2MW capacity each, giving it a total capacity of 70MW. It produces around 170,000MWh of electricity per year.

This is the equivalent of meeting the electricity requirements of around 36,000 homes — over 18 times the homes in the Cowell and Cleave Shire (based on 2016 census data).
