The Albany and Grasmere Wind Farm is comprised of two wind power plants that are adjacent to each other near Albany in Western Australia. It is situated on the coast about 12 kilometres south-west of the town of Albany, at an elevated position at approximately 80 metres (262 feet) above the Southern Ocean.
Albany Grasmere Wind Farm has 18 wind turbines, with a maximum generating capacity of 35.4 MW of electricity. The original Albany Wind Farm was commissioned in October 2001, after ten years of planning. The wind farm has the capacity to produce 80 per cent of the electricity requirements of Albany. The Albany Wind Farm was the largest of its kind in Australia, originally with 12 wind turbines. In 2011, six extra turbines were installed forming the Grassmere Wind Farm.
