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.

The Joint Regional Planning Panel met on 14th March to consider our application for an underground transmission line connecting Biala Wind Farm to Gullen Range Wind Farm substation. The panel requested we provide more information on the exact route of the transmission line and deferred their decision until this information is provided. We are now assembling that information. Upper Lachlan Shire Council will put the additional information on public exhibition after we have provided it to them. We’ll provide further updates here as they become available.
We welcomed the NSW Minister for Energy and Utilities, Hon. Don Harwin, on a guided tour of our co-located Gullen Range wind and solar farm today. To find out more, please click on the media release below. Check out a photo of the visit here.
We officially launched Australia’s first co-located wind and solar farm today, Gullen Range Wind Farm and Gullen Solar Farm. Weiwei Shi, General Manager of BJCE Australia said, “This is a historic moment for clean energy in Australia. Gullen Solar Farm is an important demonstration project -right at the forefront of renewable energy integration technology. It proves the advantages of co-locating energy infrastructure, which effectively minimises costs and environmental impacts. Together with our 73-turbine wind farm, the combined facility can power more than 70,000 average homes”. To find out more, please click on the media release below:
