About Moorabool Wind Farm

Moorabool Wind Farm consists of 104 wind turbines located approximately 27km south east of Ballarat.

The Wind Farm can produce up to 312 MW,  approximately 1,050,000 MWh of electricity annually. This is enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 228,000 average Victorian homes every year, representing approximately 10% of Victorian homes.

The project is divided into two sections, North and South. The northern section of the farm includes 50 wind turbines, while the southern section includes 54. All turbines are 169m to the tip of the blade.

Construction began in July 2018 and the wind farm commenced partial operation in late 2020. Commissioning was completed in 2022.

Goldwind Australia is a signatory to the CEC Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Projects.

Goldwind celebrates with Gordon Public Reserve, December 2021.

Representatives from Moorabool Wind Farm were on hand to celebrate our support of Gordon Public Park Reserve when they recently opened their ‘Conversation Corner’ at the grounds.

Helen Kennedy, Community Engagement Manager for Goldwind said that it was pleasing to support local initiatives such as the Gordon Public Park Reserve that helps build a strong and sustainable local community.

“Goldwind has worked in partnership with the Recreation Reserve Committee that saw close to $9,000 in funding go to a kitchen refurbishment, and most recently, $10,000 in funding for an energy efficiency upgrade for the Gordon Public Park Hall.”

“To date, Goldwind has invested more than $450,000 in the local community through its community funding, local sponsorships, and community partnerships,” said Helen.
