Govt says powerline capacity enough for south-west wind farms  

The Victorian Government says there is enough capacity on powerlines to cope with the number of wind farms proposed for the state’s south-west.

There are 13 wind farms proposed for the Moyne, Corangamite and Glenelg shires, producing enough power for nearly 500,000 homes.

But there are concerns not all the planned wind farms can connect to the national grid.

Energy Minister Peter Batchelor says there is space on the powerlines to connect the projects if they are approved.

“If the local distribution network reaches capacity and needs further upgrade the cost will need to borne in mind by the wind farm proponent, but the transmission lines as I understand … I have been informed there is enough capacity there at the moment,” he said.
