The $500m Coopers Gap Wind Farm between Kingaroy and Dalby could potentially supply 180,000 households from a proposed installed capacity of about 350MV and up to 115 wind turbines.

Minister for State Development and Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Dr Anthony Lynham said comment opened tomorrow on draft terms of reference for the project's environmental impact statement (EIS).

"Consultation is a very important part of the EIS and I encourage people to take a look at terms of reference and have their say," Dr Lynham said.

"There'll be more opportunity down the track as well to comment on the EIS once it's submitted to the independent Co-ordinator-General."

The project could create up to 350 construction jobs and ongoing employment for up to 20 people in the region.

The project was declared a co-ordinated project earlier this week.
