Gullen Range Wind Farm
Gullen Range Wind Farm is an operational wind farm in the Southern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. It is owned by New Gullen Range Wind Farm Pty Ltd (NGRWF). The wind farm consists of 73 turbines and produces 165.5MW of renewable power in ideal wind conditions.
On an average day it produces enough energy to power in excess of 70,000 average homes. By 2020, Gullen Range Wind Farm will have saved 2.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional power generation.
Stretching from north to south, the wind farm measures 22km, approximately centred on the locality of Bannister, 11km South of Crookwell and 32km north west of Goulburn.
BJCE Australia is proud to be a founding signatory of the Clean Energy Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments. The charter is a voluntary set of commitments to reflect our promise to develop and operate projects in a socially responsible way. The charter can be downloaded here.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information, or if you would like to provide feedback or lodge a complaint about the wind farm.
Applications for the next Clean Energy Program Stage 2 Funding Round will close on 22nd June 2019. The Clean Energy Program provides grants towards implementing clean energy improvements in the community. If your property is within 5km of the wind farm, you may be eligible to apply for a grant to install solar panels, solar hot water, wall insulation or double glazed windows on your house.

We were excited to kick off our 2019 school incursion program by dropping in on Wollondilly and Bradfordville Public Schools this week. Under the instruction of our Community Engagement Officer, Isabel Nelson, students made their very own anemometer, a wind speed measuring device. The students’ many technical questions on how our wind farms work were answered by Simon Zhao, the expert Site Manager of our Gullen Range Wind Farm. Everybody, including our staff, had a great time.
BJCE Australia thanks Regional Development Australia Southern Inland for inviting us to be a part of their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Industry School Partnership (SISP) program, funded by the Department of Education. SISP is a program linking industry with local schools, focussed on how STEM skills and knowledge can solve real-world problems. We are proud to be involved.
On Wednesday 8th May, the second year of the STEM Industry School Partnership Program (SISP) was launched. Crookwell High School hosted five primary schools from the Upper Lachlan area to participate in ‘Hook Day’. The day was designed to introduce students from Crookwell High School and their feeder schools to the SISP Program and engage them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Isabel Nelson, Community Engagement Officer at Gullen Range Wind and Solar Farm attended ‘Hook Day’ on behalf of BJCE Australia.
