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.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information, or if you would like to provide feedback or lodge a complaint about the proposed wind farm.
On Saturday 28th of July, Biala Wind Farm and Crookwell Neighbourhood Centre hosted an information stand and fundraising BBQ outside the Crookwell IGA. This initiative followed the project information stand held at the Crookwell Devil’s home game.
BJCE Australia was acknowledged as one of only three finalists for the 2018 Business Community Engagement Award for their co-located Gullen Range Wind Farm Clean Energy Program.
BJCE Australia is delighted to be a founding signatory of the Clean Energy Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments. The charter is a voluntary set of commitments that reflects our commitment to advance and develop projects in a socially responsible way. It demonstrates our commitment to engaging respectfully with the communities in which we plan and operate projects, being sensitive to environmental and cultural values, and making a positive contribution to the regions in which we operate.
Biala Wind Farm showed their full support for the Crookwell Devils against the Harden Hawks on Sunday 15th July 2018 with an information stand at their home game.
Gullen Range Wind Farm has been announced as a finalist for our Clean Energy Program (CLEP) in the Business Community Engagement Award category. The Clean Energy Council Awards recognise excellence in the clean energy sector.
As set out in the Development Approval, Biala Wind Farm will establish a Community Enhancement Fund providing approximately $90,000 per annum for community projects, which would begin when the wind farm commences operation. The fund will be CPI adjusted.
