Aurora Energy has today announced the winning entrants of its state-wide competition to name the wind turbines at Cattle Hill Wind Farm.

The competition involved participants having to demonstrate how wind turbines create power.

Names such as Wind Blaster, Flower Power and Envirotwirl will be etched into the wind turbines, located at Lake Echo in the Central Highlands.

CEO Rebecca Kardos said Aurora Energy is committed to renewable energy and ensuring all generations of Tasmanians understand the different ways clean power is produced in Tasmania.

“Energy plays a big part of our everyday lives and it is important we share this kind of knowledge with the broader community because it’s our community too,” Mrs Kardos said.

“We believe in supporting an engaged and informed community when it comes to energy and we are proud to work with Goldwind to educate them on how wind turbines generate clean power.

“Through our partnership with Goldwind, we are investing in Tasmania’s renewable energy sector and supporting the Tasmanian Government’s goal of being 100 per cent self-sufficient on renewable sources by 2022 as well as backing the nation’s transition to renewable generation.”

Cattle Hill Wind Farm will produce enough clean energy to power approximately 63,500 Tasmanian homes once fully operational in early 2020.
