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.

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

      In early 2014 Origin commenced discussions with the community about the possibility of increasing the turbine tip height from 132 to a maximum 165 metres. In considering the discussions and proposals put forward by turbine manufacturers it has become clear there have been continued advances in turbine technology that would result in improved wind farm performance and output.

      Origin has now determined to seek a Planning Permit Amendment that would allow a maximum wind turbine tip height of 180 metres. For further information view the latest community newsletter.
