The Rye Park Wind Farm is an approved $700 million development north of Yass and east of Boorowa, near the township of Rye Park. Located on a long ridge-line running north-south at right angles to the prevailing wind direction, the site has been selected for its exposed windy ridges, cleared grazing land and proximity to the national electricity grid.

Since the project was approved, there have been significant advancements in wind turbine technology. New, more efficient turbines are now available. Using the latest turbines at Rye Park Wind Farm would allow the project to generate more electricity from fewer turbines, powering more homes with clean energy.

Tilt Renewables is therefore proposing to modify some aspects of the approved Rye Park Wind Farm project.

This website has been established to help inform the Rye Park community and project stakeholders of the proposed modifications.

Sharing the benefits from a wind farm with the local community is integral to upholding social licence to operate. Part of the function of this website is to engage and consult with the Rye Park community on projects and programs where we could provide a financial or non-financial contribution to make a difference.

We encourage you to explore the contents of this site.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) ran their statutory consultation process from Wednesday, 13 May for 21 days until Wednesday, 3 June. The period of public exhibition is now closed.

As requested by DPIE, we prepared a Response to Submissions (RTS) Report that documents how the issues raised in submissions received from the public, government agencies and organisations have been considered and responded to.

We have also prepared an Amendment Report that outlines and assesses the further clarifications to the Approved Project which now form part of the Proposed Modification (or, Final Modified Project).

On Wednesday 19 August, we lodged the RTS Report and Amendment Report with DPIE who are now assessing the Proposed Modification.

The RTS, Amendment Report and the Modification Application are still available for download or viewing via the NSW Major Projects website.
