Wind farm to boost power supply

The Victorian government has approved a 160-megawatt wind farm to be built on farmland at Mt Mercer, about 30 kilometres south of Ballarat.
It is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 73,000 homes.

“The Mt Mercer wind farm will be a win for the environment, a win for jobs and a win for sustainable development in rural and regional Victoria,” Justin Madden (planning minister) said.”We expect this project alone to save more than 390,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.”
