Proposed Lakeland Wind Farm
Under the Electricity Act 1994, the Regulator (i.e. the Director-General of the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy) issues authorities (licences) for generation, transmission and distribution activities in Queensland’s electricity industry.
When an applicant applies for a generation authority to connect generating plant with capacity greater than 30 megawatts (MW) to a transmission grid or supply network, the Regulator must invite interested persons to make submissions about the application.
What is proposed
The proposed 106.4MW Lakeland Wind Farm is to be located 7km north-west of the township of Lakeland and 60km south-west of Cooktown in the Cook Shire in North Queensland. It will connect to Ergon Energy’s distribution network at Ergon Energy’s Lakeland substation.
The Regulator is seeking feedback from interested persons with regards to issuing Lakeland Wind Farm Pty Ltd (the operator of the proposed generator) a generation authority for the proposed Lakeland Wind Farm.
Further details are available in the Application for Electricity Generation Authority information paper (PDF, 177.9KB).
