WA Energy Minister Bill Johnston officially opened APA Group’s new Badgingarra Wind Farm in Hill River, 220 kilometres north of Perth.

The $315 million Badgingarra Wind Farm consists of 37 wind turbines (3.6 megawatt) and will be co-located with APA’s $40 million 17.5 megawatt Badgingarra Solar Farm, which is under construction.

Badgingarra’s potential annual energy output is equivalent to powering about 115,000 Western Australian homes.

The project has received a network access connection offer to the Western Power network (North Country region).

Together with APA’s nearby Emu Downs Wind and Solar Farms, the projects create a 247.5 megawatt renewable energy precinct.
