Expected homes powered: Up to 173,000.

Expected renewable energy capacity: Up to 400MW.

Saltbush Wind Farm derives its name from the native woody perennial shrub known as Old Man Saltbush. Generally associated with the drier areas of Australia, Old Man Saltbush serves as a valuable forage resource, particularly in times when other feed is scarce.

The plant has a special connection to the Hay Plains, where the region has long been informally referred to as the Saltbush Plains. This area holds a rich historical and cultural connection with local indigenous groups and has been integral to the grazing practices of farmers in the vicinity.
