Yandin WIND FARM

Facts & figures

The Yandin Wind Farm would comprise up to 94 wind turbines with a total of up to 110 metres from ground to blade tip.

It should be noted that the figures in the table below are based on a representative turbine rating. These figures could vary where different capacity turbine models are installed.

Number of turbines 94
Rating of turbines 3.60 MW
Wind farm size 338.40 MW
Predicted output 1,185,754 MWhr p.a.
Average Households supplied 211,742
Carbon dioxide saved 924,888 tonnes p.a.
 
The capacity factor used in these calculations is 40.00%.

Calculations 

All the calculations used to estimate annual wind farm output, the number of households it will supply and the CO2 emissions saved, are generic figures based upon the calculations below.

 1. Average Output

Wind Farm Capacity in MW x Capacity Factor (%) x Annual Hours (8760) = Wind Farm Output (MWhr per year)

2. Households Supplied

Predicted Output / Average Electricity Consumption per Household p.a based on the following average consumption figures:

- WA: 5.6 MWhr (Independent Market Operator 2014, SWIS Electricity Demand Outlook, Table 2)

3. CO2 Emissions Avoided

Wind Farm Output x CO2 Savings per kWH = CO2 Emissions Avoided 

Emissions figures used, in kilograms of CO2 emitted per MWh, were obtained from the Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy (August 2016) National Greenhouse Accounts (NGA) Factors.
