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.
A link to the Planning Permit is available to view here
