New England Wind
Welcome to New England Wind (NEW), a project which aims to establish the first community-owned wind farm in NSW. A community-owned wind farm based on the New England Tablelands will have significant benefits for residents, businesses and organisations in this region.
To meet local expectations, and be feasible, it is anticipated that the proposed wind farm will comprise 3-6 wind turbines.
Achieving the goals of establishing NEW and ultimately achieving energy self-sufficiency – will require a large groundswell of support.
Please consider supporting this initiative. We would greatly welcome your involvement!

After a considerable pause in this project due to political and funding constraints, we are excited to announce a recent funding boost from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. This funding will be used to measure wind speeds at potentially four different sites across New England using state-of-the-art sodar technology purchased by Embark with assistance from Fulcrum3D and Epuron. Details of this project can be seen here.
