Financial, social and environmental capital from the community investment program
Generate cheap, clean energy right where it’s needed, for the port and community
Reinforce Fremantle’s identity as a forward-thinking community, with a proud heritage in the wind and water
Over $500,000 in engineering, approvals, and wind monitoring work has been completed and is available to our team to kickstart this project
Land access is *the* barrier to this project going ahead. The Fremantle Port Authority have decided not to allow us to lease the land, for reasons that have not been transparently communicated. Without land there isn’t a project to be built.
We've created an awesome and enlightening Frequently Asked Questions to answer your questions and concerns. We'd also love to meet you at our next community engagement (like Windy Beers!).
The eight circles of Fremantle Port land we need to lease is state-owned, but controlled by the FPA. We have support from politicians at municipal, state and federal levels. In all three parties. But some of them don't believe we have enough *community* support for this project.
Help prove them wrong: Write, email, question them in public forums (like radio shows) — tell them you support the FCWF, and ask how they'll help us make this dream a reality.
So many have heard of our project, but don't realise how wonderful its outcomes could be, or how simple the barriers are to making it happen. Help us raise awareness of this amazing opportunity at your community event, or local business. Contact us, and consider adding your details to our database of skilled potential helpers!

Your very own Freo Community Wind Farm director Louis went onto an internationally-broadcast community TV show, The Couch, to discuss our project. Check out the video on YouTube (from 28:55)
We spoke a little big last Windy Beers about the importance of the Renewable Energy Target (RET). This policy not only cleans our electricity supply (one of the dirtiest of any country on the planet), it actually will save us money on electricity bills! We encourage you to find out more, and make a brief […]
Hello supporters, We are filming the video our Pozible funds were raised for this Saturday at Claremont Primary, and there’s a couple of things we could do with some help for those keen to be involved: 1. Food! We need to feed about 50 people across the day and we’re doing our best to cook […]
