This is enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 200,000 average Victorian homes every year, representing 9% of Victorian homes.
The project is divided into two sections, North and South.
50 wind turbines in the Northern Section and 54 turbines in the Southern Section. All turbines proposed are 171m to the tip of the blade.
