New Wind Farm for Crystal Brook

Wind Turbine

Crystal Brook residents will soon have an eyesore among the Flinders Ranges with Neoen being given the go ahead for a new wind farm.

The French company plans to build 26 wind turbines along with lithium-ion battery and a solar farm. 

The State Commission Assessment Panel have approved the $500 million project making many of the locals unhappy. 

Mayor Leon Stephens told Spencer Gulf Broadcasters Neone Energy have ticked off the requirements they needed to receive approval and Council look forward to seeing what they do in the area. 

Works are due to begin within the next 12 months.
