Australia to Build 232-MW Wind Farm

Victoria, Australia [PhysOrg.com] The Planning Minister, Rob Hulls, today gave the green light to building Australia’s most powerful wind farm at Mt Gellibrand, near Colac, with the capacity to power 133,450 homes a year. Mr Hulls said issuing the planning permit was another important step towards achieving the Bracks Government’s Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET), which commits energy retailers to buying 10 per cent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2016.
