Victoria’s Coonooer Bridge wind farm has begun producing what is assumed to be the cheapest wind energy in Australia, after the project became the first from the ACT government’s hugely successful wind auction to generate power.

The milestone was announced by ACT environment minister Simon Corbell on Wednesday, who said the wind farm was currently exporting 6MW of energy, with full generation of 20MW expected later this month.Capital_Turbines

A VITAL income stream that blew in by chance for some drought-hit farmers near Charlton in central Victoria is about to become a reality.

The Coonooer Bridge Wind Farm on a property owned by Peter, Leigh and David Watts, of Yeungroon, is in the final stages of construction and will be commissioned by March 31.

According to the developer, Windlab, it is one of only three wind projects in Victoria with community shareholders.

And, with six towers each standing 95.1m, with blades spanning 117m, they will be the largest wind turbines yet built in Australia.
