Kondinin Wind and Solar Farm

Detailed Planning
Kondinin Wind and Solar Farm

The Kondinin Wind and Solar Farm is a proposed wind and solar project in Western Australia's Wheatbelt Region, north-east of Perth being jointly developed by Shell Energy and Foresight Group. 

The project is being planned in stages, with the first stage of a 121 megawatt (MW) wind farm confirmed. The second stage may consist of up to three options: 

  • an expanded wind farm, delivering an additional 114 MW of capacity
  • a 80 MW solar farm across 125 hectares, and/or
  • a battery energy storage system of up to 60 MW / 120 MWh total storage capacity.

The Kondinin Wind and Solar Farm is to be located approximately 245 kilometres east of Perth, and 5 kilometres north of Kondinin township.

The project is close to the existing Western Power 220 kilovolt transmission line, through which it will connect to the grid.
