Wind Prospect respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which our office and each of our projects are located.
We also acknowledge and uphold their continuing relationship to the land and pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.

The proposed Whyte Yarcowie Wind Farm is located east, and south of the Whyte Yarcowie township and 190 km north of Adelaide in the northern Mount Lofty ranges of South Australia. The area is predominantly cleared land, used for livestock and farming.

Wind Prospect is undertaking feasibility studies for the development of a wind farm with up to 85 wind turbines. The project site has been chosen due to its high wind resource and location near existing transmission infrastructure.

Wind monitoring and project feasibility assessments are currently underway as the project works towards submitting a development application later this year.

Wind Prospect see the development of a windfarm as collaborative process between developers, landholders, local communities, Aboriginal custodians, technicians, data analysts, engineers, biologists, sociologists, local and state government, elected members, administrators and planners, manufacturers, small business and volunteers. It is a long journey from concept to reality and there is a rigorous process that all proposals must be tested against.

Wind Prospect has been developing renewable energy projects in Australia since 2000. We have achieved planning approval for 22 wind farms and two solar farms, totalling more than 3,000 megawatts of electricity generating capacity. Of these projects, more than 2,100 megawatts are either operating or under construction. Find out more about Wind Prospect here.

To all our project stakeholders, stay safe and well and don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any queries.
