GE will supply and install 123 wind turbines for the Coopers Gap wind farm project located in Cooranga North as reported by Ecogeneration.

Once completed in 2019 the 453-megawatt wind farm will:

  • Produce around 1.5 gigawatt-hours of renewable energy every year.
  • The collected energy will be enough to power more than 260,000 average Australian homes.
  • Reduce CO2 emissions by 1,180,000 tonnes every year.
