Moorabool Wind Farm.
The Moorabool Wind Farm project is located approximately 4km south of Ballan, approximately 67km from Melbourne, 27km from Ballarat and 47km from Geelong. It will extend 14km north to south between Ballan and Mount Wallace to the west of the C141 (Geelong ballan Road).
The Minster for Planning approved the construction and operation of 107 wind turbines. With the use of the latest turbine technology, the project is expected to produce 1,100,000 MWh of electricity annually. This is enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 223,000 average Victorian homes every year, representing 11% of Victorian homes.
The project is divided into two sections, the Bungeeltap Section towards the North of the project site and the Ballark Section to the south.
The Northern Section consists of 50 turbines and the Southern Section consists of 57 turbines. All turbines proposed are 171m to the tip of the blade.
Construction is expected to commence by early 2018 and the wind farm is expected to commence operation in early 2019.
