About Stockyard Hill

The project consists of 157 approved wind turbines located approximately 35 km west of Ballarat. The Stockyard Hill Wind Farm has the potential to harness one of Victoria’s best wind resources and will provide substantial environmental, community and economic benefits. We are currently working towards completing the planning permit conditions.

Network Connection

Origin has received approval for a terminal station site to the south of Lismore in February 2013.

The terminal station site provides the connection point for renewable energy generated at the Stockyard Hill Wind Farm to the national electricity grid.

  • Project news

      Origin is preparing an application to amend the Permit for Stockyard Hill Wind Farm to increase the maximum height of the turbines from 132 metres to 165 meters.

      This does not necessarily increase the wind turbine generator capacity (as compared to the turbines allowed under the existing permit specifications) but rather allows an increased tower height and rotorblade size to better capture the wind energy.

      Origin will continue to provide project updates to the community.
