    Mt Gellibrand Wind Farm

    Winchelsea, Victoria (Australia)

    Most of the land around Mount Gellibrand is privately owned and used for sheep farming. The plains are generally very flat, with a number of permanent lakes and wetlands, and also windy, making them an ideal site for a wind farm.
