Snowtown sits on the Barunga and Hummocks Ranges, 170 kilometres (km) north of Adelaide, in South Australia. Stage one of the wind farm has been generating electricity since 2008, with 47 Suzlon S88 2.1MW wind turbines and is one of mainland Australia’s best performing wind farms. The addition of a single Suzlon S95 2.1MW turbine was commissioned in 2011. The power from Snowtown is all sold on a 'as produced basis for a specified price per KWh' until 2018.
Stage two saw the construction of 90 Siemens 3MW direct drive wind turbines. The total average annual output of both stages is expected to be approximately 1,350GWh: enough to power 230,000 homes and offset 950,000 tonnes a year of CO2 currently produced by coal-fired electricity generation.
This Update explains why Infratil invested in Canberra Data Centres, Longroad Energy and Tilt Renewables, and outlines the investment plans of each of those businesses.
Comparisons between Tilt Renewables and Longroad Energy are a helpful way to appreciate that while both companies are seeking to develop a portfolio of wind and solar generation, the USA and Australia are quite separate jurisdictions presenting quite distinct challenges and opportunities.
