The Junction Rivers Wind Farm (formally Burrawong Wind Farm), proposed by Windlab Developments, is a 750MW wind generation facility to be located 15km south of Balranald. The scope of the project includes 107 wind turbines and other ancillary infrastructure required for delivery. It may include a Battery Energy Storage System of up to approximately 250 MW / 500 megawatt-hours (MWh). The wind farm will connect to either Project EnergyConnect’s 330-kilovolt (kV) transmission line or Transgrid’s 220 kV transmission line.
The proposed site is located within NSW's South-West Renewable Energy Zone.
