A visit to the Albany Windfarm is a must do while staying in Albany. Firstly to view the huge turbines and not really but secondly to view the beautiful unspoilt coastline.
The windfarm was constructed by Verve Energy in October 2001 after ten years of planning with 12 wind turbines. In 2011 another 6 turbines were added to the site. The 18 wind turbines are the largest that have ever been installed in the southern hemisphere. They tower 65m above the ground and have three 35m blades. The wind farm has the capacity to produce 80% of the electricity requirements for Albany.
