Fremantle Community Wind Farm

A wind farm is proposed at the Fremantle Port, to re-power the community with locally-owned renewable energy and add an iconic landmark to this amazing city.
So far, land access has proved to be the main barrier to this project going ahead. Despite a positive past history and recent lobbying, the Fremantle Port Authority has decided not to allow access to the land although the reasons for that decision have not been  transparently communicated. Without land there isn’t a project to be built.
The Fremantle Wind Farm project team is building community support on many levels, engaging community groups, unions, NGOs, politicians, and independent residents, nearly all of whom support our project. It is vital that the community surrounding the Fremantle Wind Farm is engaged at all stages of the project, and early demonstrations of support will be the key to its  success.
It is of utmost importance that you voice your views with the key people responsible for Fremantle Port operations.
The project is being developed by the Fremantle Wind Farm team. Members of the team hope to use our experience from the energy sector — in areas such as renewable energy engineering and design, carbon strategy, technology development, electrical distribution, and community consultation — to make this community dream into a reality.
The Fremantle Wind Farm will move to a community ownership structure, once land access is achieved, and will seek significant community input into its design.
