The Victorian Government today approved the Oakland's Hill Wind Farm located near Glenthompson. The project of up to 42 turbines will generate up to 80MW of clean energy via a connection to the national grid. The project was located by Windlab in 2004 using WindScapeTM modelling. Several years of measurements from a number of tall towers validated the wind resource and environmental studies found the site suitable.
“We are now looking forward to completing the development phase” said CEO Mark Sinclair “The construction will employ a lot of local businesses and people – a good thing at this time”
