Alice Springs wind study at Owen Springs Power Station

Through Territory Generation’s partnership with Future Grid, we are participating in a wind study in Alice Springs to investigate whether there could be a second renewable energy resource available the region. Two Sonic Detection and Ranging (SODAR) units have been deployed in Alice Springs, one on Owen Springs Power Station land. While previous studies have been carried out on the subject, advancing turbine technology and diminishing costs means wind power for Alice Springs is now worth investigating. Data will be collected over the course of one year and shared publicly at the end of the study.
