The Golden Plains Wind Farm is estimated to create more than 700 direct and indirect jobs during construction and over 70 direct operational jobs!

The Golden Plains Wind Farm will generate employment opportunities both directly related to the construction and operation of the wind farm and indirectly through increased demand for goods and services. The direct employment opportunities throughout construction will cover a wide range of industries, from civil and electrical contracting, earthworks, temporary construction facilities, safety and fencing, right through to accommodation, cleaning and catering. At this stage, construction is anticipated to commence in Q1 2022.
