About the Project

Evening WindfarmThe Mt Mercer Wind Farm was approved for development by the Victorian Minister for Planning in April 2007.

Stage 1 of Detailed Design of the wind farm has been completed and endorsed by the Minister for Planning and construction of some roads and access tracks is ready to commence.

It is expected  that the subsequent stages of detailed design will be completed and endorsed once the final turbine selection has been completed. This will clear the way for construction to commence on the site.

The wind farm is expected to generate enough electricity to power approximately 74,000 homes.
