Western Plains Wind Farm

With a growing national portfolio of renewable energy projects, Ark Energy is focused on its larger utility-scale wind energy projects. As a result in October 2023 the company made the difficult decision to cease development of the Western Plains Wind Farm located at the tip of the Stanley peninsula in north-west Tasmania and it was withdrawn from the planning process.

While the scale of this project no longer fits with the priorities of its portfolio, Ark Energy believes the only way forward for Australia is to transition swiftly to renewable energy and remains committed to its other utility-scale wind farm projects in Tasmania and around the country.
