The Collector Wind Farm project is a proposed wind farm development to be located adjacent to the Hume Highway in the NSW Southern Highlands, north of the village of Collector.

The Collector Wind Farm project received development approval from the NSW Planning Assessment Commission (under delegated authority from the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure) on 3 December 2013. The approval allows construction and operation of up to 55 wind turbine generators, and includes a series of conditions attached to the consent.

RATCH-Australia is currently undertaking a range of engineering, design and planning tasks that are required in order to prepare for the commencement of construction. Depending on the progress and outcomes of this work, it is anticipated that construction of the project could commence during 2015.

Additional information will be regularly uploaded onto this webpage providing updates on the project. Please register your email address here to receive notification of any updates.
