Keyneton wind farm

Pacific Hydro is proposing to develop a wind farm at Keyneton in South Australia. The site is located 6km west of Sedan and 10km south east of Angaston and runs approximately 15km north to south along the Mount Lofty Ranges.

On 6 December 2013, the South Australian Development Assessment Commission (DAC) approved the project, comprising 42 turbines with a maximum height of 145.5m from the ground to the tip of the blade (when vertical). The project is anticipated to generate over 325 gigawatt-hours per year, enough to power approximately 60,000 households.

Local benefits from the project are likely to include job opportunities during construction, increased council revenue through rates from the project, funding of local community initiatives through our Community Investment Program.

Project Approval

On 14 December 2017 Pacific Hydro received an extension of time from the Government of South Australia to substantially commence development of its Keyneton Wind Farm and associated ancillary infrastructure.

Under this new extension, Pacific Hydro is required to have substantially commenced the development by 29 November 2019 and completed by 29 November 2021.

In the New Year Pacific Hydro will be re-engaging with the Keyneton community.  If you would like to receive project updates please register by emailing or by calling 1800 730 734.
