Biala Wind Farm
The proposed Biala wind farm is a 31 turbine wind farm located approximately 6km south of Grabben Gullen on Grabben Gullen Road, 8km east of Biala and 14.5km south west of Crookwell in the Southern Tablelands of NSW. The planned wind farm is 100% owned by Beijing Jingneng Clean Energy (Australia) Holding Pty Ltd (BJCE Australia) who own the nearby 73 turbine Gullen Range Wind Farm and 10MW Gullen Solar Farm.
Biala Wind Farm is expected to have an installed capacity of approximately 110MW producing enough electricity for approximately 46,000 typical homes on an average day of wind.
BJCE Australia commenced construction of the wind farm in August 2019 with electricity expected to be generated in the second quarter of 2020.
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.

Although a little delayed by COVID-19, the Biala RFS firefighters came together earlier this month to celebrate Christmas with a tasty BBQ. BJCE’s Biala Wind Farm was delighted to cover the catering costs. We wish the local RFS a very safe and happy 2021.
Over Christmas and the New Year break, BJCE’s Biala Wind Farm donated to the Meals on Wheels Christmas Fruit Hamper Drive. Twenty-six hampers were delivered to Crookwell residents to bring joy during the festive season. Biala Wind Farm also supported Crookwell Information Neighbourhood Centre’s (CINC) end of year Christmas concert by supplying colouring-in books to help fill the children’s gift bags.
