A wind farm generating enough power for 140,000 households will be Victoria's most productive and is to be established in Victoria's south west near Dundonnell, 200 kilometres from Melbourne.

Once the A$650 million wind farm is complete, it will have 96 turbines and will produce enough power to supply around 140,000 residents.

The size and scale of the wind farm would make it Victoria's biggest. It will create an estimated 300 jobs during construction, with 16 positions once built.

The wind farm's layout was designed to accommodate brolga breeding and flocking habits. Brolga are common wetland birds of tropical and south eastern Australia and New Guinea and are a part of the crane family.  

The project will include an on site quarry to reduce pressure on local roads.

Leading the project will be Trustpower, construction is expected to start within the next 12 months.

This project will be the 9th wind farm to be approved in the region.

By 2025 up to 5,400 megawatts of new large scale renewable energy capacity is anticipated to be built in Victoria, which would represent an estimated A$2.5 billion of investment.

The State Government of Victoria has a renewable energy target of 25 per cent by 2020 and 40 per cent by 2025. 

About 14 per cent of Victoria's electricity currently comes from renewable sources.
