In December 2017, the Victorian Government announced the signing of a 15-year support agreement with Neoen Australia to deliver the Bulgana Green Power Hub.
Bulgana Green Power Hub is located in the Wimmera region of central-western Victoria, about 200km north-west of Melbourne and 11km north-east of Stawell. The Hub consists of a 204 megawatt (MW) wind farm and a 20 megawatt (MW) / 34 megawatt hour (MWh) battery. The power generated by the Hub is fed directly into the national power grid.
The benefits include:
- A total investment of $565 million
- Generation of more than 750,000 MWh of clean, renewable electricity into the national power grid each year (enough electricity to power approximately 150,000 homes)
- Over 110 jobs were created during construction
- A $120,000 per annum Bulgana Wind Farm (BWF) Community Fund
The project was developed and operated by Neoen Australia. For more information, please visit the Bulgana Green Power Hub.
The Bulgana Wind Farm (BWF) Community Fund provides financial support to community groups for projects that benefit and strengthen Northern Grampians Shire.
