Boco Rock Wind Farm is situated on ridgelines 10km south west of Nimmitabel and 30km north of Bombala in NSW. Stage One of the wind farm consisting of 67 turbines has been operating since 2015 and generates 113MW of renewable energy.
Boco Rock Wind Farm Stage Two Modification to the original Project Approval issued in 2010, has been assessed and approved by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment. Stage Two will include up to 20 wind turbine generators with a maximum tip height of 200m within the approved Yandra cluster. The purpose of the Modification is to accommodate contemporary wind turbine technology which has evolved towards longer blade lengths and taller towers to increase generation efficiency and therefore electrical production. No changes to the Stage One operational Project are proposed as part of the Modification.
