ACCIONA is a global leader in the development and management of renewable energy, infrastructure and water services. With more than a century of experience and a workforce exceeding 30,000 employees, we operate in more than 30 countries across five continents.
ACCIONA Energy has built and owns three wind farms in Australia, one through a joint venture, and has developed a strong pipeline of projects for construction. The wind farms at Waubra in Victoria, Gunning in New South Wales and Cathedral Rocks in South Australia produce 304.5MW of green energy, equivalent to the energy needs of 205,000 households.
The Gunning Wind Farm is located 15kms northeast of Gunning. The turbines are located on privately owned land, on a property called ‘Walwa’. The Gunning Wind Farm scholarship is open to all students from the local area wishing to enter further study in TAFE or University in 2016.
