The second largest wind power plant in Australia has begun construction.

The A$439m Snowton II in South Australia is being developed by TrustPower and 90 turbines are being provided by Siemens.

When operational the plant will have capacity to power 180,000 homes.

The project is adjacent to TrustPower’s 100 MW Snowtown wind farm and like that development, has a PPA in place with Origin Energy – the energy retailer’s largest wind offtake agreement to date.
