Stockyard Hill Wind Farm will generate employment opportunities both directly related to the construction and operation of the wind farm and indirectly through increased demand for goods and services.

The original socio economic analysis shows that revenues from the additional demand for goods and services within the region are estimated to contribute up to $166 million per year.

During the operation of the wind farm, revenue associated with additional demand for goods and services is estimated at $21 million per year. It is estimated that approximately 30 people would be employed in the operation of the wind farm.

The project is also expected to have a number of positive implications for business and industry development in the region including greater private sector investment in the Pyrenees and Corangamite regions.
