Welcome to Kerrs Creek Wind Farm

A new wind farm project in Australia

Project Benefits

Community Benefits

RES is committed to giving back to regional communities that host its renewable energy projects.  The Kerrs Creek Wind Farm will commit to establishing a community fund once the project is operational. The fund will provide ongoing funding to support local community groups over the life of the project. Input will be sought from the community to inform and shape how the fund could be implemented.

RES also sponsors local community groups, clubs and projects where possible and we are on the lookout for local clubs, projects and organisations to sponsor. If you are seeking sponsorship and your organisation is located in the Belgravia, Euchareena, Boomey or Molong area, please contact us.


The project will generate approximately 340 direct and 540 indirect full time equivalent (FTE) positions during its approximately 24 month construction period. Beyond construction, the project will support approximately 10 direct and 6 indirect FTE positions during operations and maintenance of the facility. Based on the project site, these residential roles are anticipated to exist for the operational life of the project (30 years). The operational period is also expected to create further supply chain employment.

Environmental Benefits

The Kerrs Creek Wind Farm will contribute to the achievement of the New South Wales Government's targets of a 50% emissions reduction in New South Wales compared to 2005 levels and net zero emissions by 2050. 

Additional benefits include:

  • Minimal impact on the productivity of traditional farming activities;
  • Pre-construction land uses can be fully re-established post decommissioning;
  • Smaller environmental footprint than comparative forms of generation;
  • Additional fire breaks and improved access roads for firefighting;
  • The wind farm will generate clean renewable energy to power between 250,000 and 325,000 New South Wales homes per year**; and
  • Additional energy supplies to help meet the growing energy demands in New South Wales.
