About Stockyard Hill

The project consists of 149 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, and will have the potential to power more than 340,000 homes annually.

The Victorian Government has approved the Planning Amendment that primarily increases the tip height to 180 metres.

The Victorian Government has also approved an on-site quarry and native vegetation removal associated with the overhead 132 kV powerlines required to connect the wind farm to the 500 kV network south of Lismore.
