Australia wind farm gets go-ahead

Date : 9th June 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Approval has been given for Australia's biggest wind farm to be built near Broken Hill in New South Wales. Almost 600 turbines will generate enough electricity for more than 400,000 homes. A forest of giant turbines will emerge from the red dust of the Australian outback near the isolated town famous for its lead and zinc mining. The scheme, one of the world's largest onshore wind farms, will eventually cover more than 32,000 hectares.
