The Crookwell 2 Wind Farm is currently operational as of December 2018. The Crookwell 2 Wind Farm site is located in the NSW Southern Tablelands region approximately 14km south-east of Crookwell township, 30km north-west of Goulburn, and 90km north-east of Canberra, within the Upper Lachlan Shire Council Local Government Area.

The project area covers an area of approximately 2,088 ha, it situated south of the existing Crookwell 1 Wind Farm and to the west and north of the Crookwell 3 Wind Farm sites. The current land use of the project is primarily agricultural activities including grazing of sheep and cattle.

The Crookwell 2 Wind Farm was granted development consent by the Minister for Planning in 2005 for up to 46 wind turbines and associated infrastructure. In 2009 the development consent was amended to increase the size of the turbines (Mod-1). In 2016 Crookwell Development Pty Ltd lodged an amendment application (Mod-2) to increase the size of the turbines to a tip height of 160 metres, a hub height of 95 metres and a rotor diameter of 130 metres, the number of turbines was reduced to a maximum of 32. The Mod-2 application was approved by Department of Planning and Environment on 31st October 2017.

The project connects to the 330kV Transmission Line system via the approved terminal station.
