TransGrid, owner and operator of the transmission system in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, has said that it has received inquiries to transport wind-generated electricity in northern NSW worth $2-3bn.
Inquiries have come from firms looking to supply an additional 1200 MW of wind-generated power into the national electricity market, said TransGrid.
Stephen Clark, executive general manager of Network Planning for TransGrid, said the company’s planned Bonshaw to Casino high-voltage line could play an important role.
“TransGrid’s far north NSW project will deliver a more reliable electricity network which could encourage companies to invest in large-scale renewable technology in the area,” he said. “TransGrid has received lots of inquiries in northern NSW, up to an additional 1200 MW of wind generation that can supply the national electricity market in the future.”
