About The Project

The Golden Plains Wind Farm is located in the Golden Plains Shire, surrounding Rokewood to the west south and east and is spread over an area of 17,000 hectares of farmland.

In 2006, WestWind began monitoring the wind resource in the Golden Plains Shire, specifically around the Barunah Park and Rokewood area.  In 2016, WestWind completed further feasibility investigations into the proposed development site and made the commercial decision to pursue a planning permit for an 800 MW project.

The project is still in very early stages with further environmental and cultural heritage studies still to be completed. At this stage it is anticipated that the project will comprise between 200-240 turbines.

The project’s first open day will be held on Thursday, February 23, from noon-8pm at the Rokewood Hall, Ferrars Rd. WestWind encourages the community that surrounds the site to come to the open day to view maps and gather further information about the proposed development.
