Emu Downs Wind Farm


The Emu Downs Wind Farm can be found on Bibby Road – the turnoff from Brand Highway to Cervantes.

This farm was the joint effort of Griffin Energy and Stanwell Corporation to supply energy to Kwinana Desalination Plant.  There are 48 wind turbines.

A little stop is recommended to see these huge renewable energy sources ‘up close and personal’.   Personally I was expecting noise, but all I could find is that the wind around me produced more noise than the turbines themselves.

The Emu Downs Wind Farm was sold to the APA Group ((Australia’s largest gas infrastructure business) in 2011 and in 2013 APA announced that they will be incorporating a Solar Power Facility within the Farm.
