Iberdrola Australia is pleased to announce that it has committed to building Flyers Creek Wind Farm, a 145MW wind project near Orange in central-west New South Wales (NSW). The project is expected to generate approximately 450 gigawatt hours of electricity per year, equivalent to powering more than 80,000 Australian households and avoiding over 333,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year. 

Construction works continued during April 2022. The wind farm will include the installation of 38 wind turbines and related balance of plant. The project will create 230 jobs during construction, and an estimated 6-8 permanent regional jobs throughout its operational life. A Community Benefit Fund will also be established and will receive its first contribution with the start of construction. The Fund will be administered by Blayney Shire Council. 

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION COMMITTEE

A Community Consultation Committee for the Flyers Creek Wind Farm was established in 2012.  The Committee is made up of local representatives and meets quarterly to provide local advice to Iberdrola Australia. Meeting minutes can be found under Project documents below.

COMMUNITY BENEFIT FUND

Iberdrola Australia has established a community benefit fund which is administered by Blayney Shire Council. We will make six-monthly contributions to the fund for the next 25 years.
