    Berrimal Wind Farm

    The Berrimal Wind Farm is proposed for a site 19km west of Wedderburn in the Buloke Shire of north western Victoria.

    Planning approval was originally granted by Buloke Shire Council in 2007. In 2014, the Buloke Shire Council approved an amendment to the planning permit to allow for the use of contemporary wind turbine technology. ACCIONA Energy has recently received an extension of time to commence construction of the Berrimal Wind Farm from Buloke Shire Council.
