On 30 September 2021, the Commission varied Lincoln Gap Wind Farm Pty Ltd’s electricity generation licence, authorising 24 of the existing 59 turbines to be replaced by Vesta 3.6 V126 turbines

The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to the application and received no submissions from stakeholders.

The Commission assessed Lincoln Gap Wind Farm Pty Ltd’s application for an electricity generation licence against the relevant provisions of the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 and determined that all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied. It has therefore approved the application.
