    Mortlake South Wind Farm

    The Mortlake South Wind Farm is proposed for a site 5 kilometres south of Mortlake in the Moyne Shire of south western Victoria. 

    The wind farm will be constructed on cleared, open and level predominantly dairy farming country. The location is highly exposed to consistent winds across this part of the state.

    Planning approval was originally granted by the State Government in 2010. In April 2017, the Minister for Planning approved an amendment to the planning permit to allow for the use of contemporary wind turbine technology. The A$250m project will generate significant economic activity in the Moyne Shire and surrounds.

    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.

    Cathedral Rocks Wind Farm

    Port Lincoln, South Australia (Australia)

    The site covers an area of about 29km², with a coastal exposure of nearly 11 kilometres. The Wind Farm consists of 33 two-megawatt wind turbines – generating enough green electricity to supply 35,000 homes every year.
