Thunderbolt Energy Hub is a wind energy project with the ability to provide affordable, reliable power to New South Wales consumers. The Thunderbolt Energy Hub is being proposed approximately 47km north-east of Tamworth, NSW, and is located within the New England Renewable Energy Zone (REZ). The project is proposed in two project stages.
Wind turbines are tall structures that can capture stronger winds at higher altitudes. Turbines are generally 150-270m in height.
The Thunderbolt Energy Hub is located in New South Wales between the towns of Bendemeer and Kentucky, approximately a five hour drive north of Sydney.
Stage 1 of the project will include a 192 MW wind farm, located within the Tamworth Regional Council and Uralla Shire Council LGAs. The size for stage 2 is yet to be determined.
Photomontages Stage 1
Photomontages provide an impression of what the wind farm may look like from different points in the landscape at different distances to the wind turbines. Neoen’s visual consultant has created the photomontages on the map to give you an impression of what the wind turbines proposed for stage 1 of the Thunderbolt Energy Hub may look like from different points along public roads surrounding the project area.
Click on the six camera icons on the map to display the photomontage in a new tab. The photomontage will allow you to pan through a 360 degree view from the point at which the photomontage was taken. You will be able to zoom into the image to get a close-up look at the wind turbines.
Please contact us if you have any questions about the photomontages.

Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.
With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.
This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice in Australia.
