CERES WIND FARM
About the Project
The Ceres Wind Farm is a 600MW community-initiated development on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia. Recognising the opportunities of the local area’s wind resource, two farmers sought a partnership with a wind energy company. Spark Renewables acquired the Ceres Wind Farm project in May 2022.
Why this site?
The site is on elevated land with excellent wind resource and is located in close proximity to Adelaide.
A strong grid connection
We will connect directly into Adelaide thereby ensuring a strong marginal loss factor and low risk of curtailment.
The idea for a wind farm was first proposed to local developers by two local Yorke Peninsula farmers, who recognised the opportunities of the area’s wind resource.
We believe in sharing the benefits of our projects with the communities we operate in. Significant and meaningful benefits would be offered to the community, with a scheme developed in consultation with community members. This will include a large community fund to support local business and farmers.
Spark Renewables is committed to working with the Traditional Custodians of the land to ensure the project minimises heritage impacts whilst maximising opportunities for education, training and employment.
