Construction has begun on The Lincoln Gap Wind Farm. Located 15km west of Port Augusta, the project is worth $450 million.
The Lincoln Gap Wind Farm is a 59-wind turbine, with 10MW grid scale battery storage, project under development by Nexif Energy Australia Pty Ltd. The project will connect to a 275kV grid line managed by ElectraNet, running to the south of the project.
The system is part of a new expansion to dependably integrate renewable energy into the National Energy Market, delivering fast response storage capacity.
Once the project is complete, it will produce enough electricity to power around 155,000 Australian homes. It is also expected to offset more than 600,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year through its operations.
