Wimmera Plains Energy Facility

About the project

The Wimmera Plains Energy Facility aims for an output of between 291MW and 416MW, connecting to western Victoria’s 220kV electricity network. Plans include 52 wind turbines with a blade-tip height of 247m above the ground. They will generate enough clean green renewable energy to power more than 202,000 homes remove 1.2 million tons of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere annually.

Project location

The site for the proposed wind farm is 10km northeast of Horsham in western Victoria, on land both to the east and west of the north-south Henty Highway.
