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 ridgeline 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 while it’s on public exhibition. We encourage you to explore the contents of this site, however, please note it has been developed to help you navigate and review the Modification Application.

Submissions on the Project can only be made via the NSW Major Projects website.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) has advised that their statutory consultation process commences Wednesday, 13 May and continues for 21 days until Wednesday, 3 June. During this period of public exhibition, the Modification Application will be available for download or viewing, and DPIE will accept submissions on the Modification Application, via the NSW Major Projects website.
