Biala Wind Farm
The proposed Biala wind farm is a 31 turbine wind farm located approximately 8km east of Biala and 14.5km south west of Crookwell in the Southern Tablelands of NSW. The planned wind farm is owned by Beijing Jingneng Clean Energy (Australia) Holding Pty Ltd (BJCE Australia) who also have a 75% interest in the nearby 73 turbine Gullen Range Wind Farm and 10MW Gullen Solar Farm.
The Biala wind farm is expected to have an installed capacity of approximately 100MW producing enough electricity for approximately 46,000 typical homes on an average day of wind.
BJCE Australia intends to begin construction of the wind farm in mid 2018 with electricity being generated in the second quarter of 2019.

Work is underway to replace seven culverts on Kiala Road, between Range Road and Crookwell. Traffic controls will be in place until expected completion in the middle of May. These upgrades are part of the development approval requirements for Biala Wind Farm. It’ll be great for all to have less dips on Kialla road.
The development application for the Biala Wind Farm Transmission Connection is currently on exhibition through Upper Lachlan Shire Council until the 15th May 2018.

On 11th April we made our supplementary submission to Upper Lachlan Shire Council for the transmission line development. This submission is intended to address the Joint Regional Planning Panel’s request for further information, as detailed in the deferral notice issued by the panel. The Council will now assess our submission and produce a supplementary report which will be submitted to the panel. Following this, the panel will review the Council’s supplementary report and then schedule a new hearing date to determine the Transmission Line DA. Our supplementary submission can be found on our ‘Project Approvals and Documents’ page.
