Visit to Cullerin Wind Farm

On Friday 16th October 2015, the Belconnen Local Group arranged a visit to a wind farm on a property at Cullerin Range near Gunning.

17 of us were guided by the site manager and we had a very interesting and informative experience, with lots of questions and answers on both technological and social impact aspects relating to the wind farm.

Owned and operated by Origin energy, it is a 30Megawatt outfit comprising 15 turbines located on a high ridge in a very pleasant country ambience.

About 11 of us also enjoyed lunch together at Gunning before going on to visit the farm.
