UPC/AC has proposed an 800-megawatt wind farm to be located south of the township of Coolah, NSW. The project would include up to 148 wind turbines with a maximum tip height of 250 metres in addition to approximately 65 kilometres of high-voltage transmission infrastructure to connect the project to the National Electricity Market (NEM).
The wind turbines are expected to be spread across three 'clusters', with a small substation on each cluster, and one larger substation to connect the wind farm to the NEM.
