Mt Mercer Wind Farm was sold to Meridian Energy in 2009.
For current project information and contacts, please see:
The wind farm comprises 64 wind turbines with a rated capacity of 2.05 MW and produces over 390,000 MWh of clean electricity per year. This is equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 73,000 average Victorian households and is more than twice the number of households of the City of Ballarat.
In 2009, the Mt Mercer Wind Farm Project was sold to Meridian Energy as a greenfield site. Meridian Energy began construction in December 2010, with generation commencing in November 2013. By October 2014, the Mt Mercer wind farm became fully operational.
The above would not have been possible without WestWind Energy’s expertise in identifying, securing and developing the site in close co-operation with the farmers that continue to farm their land under the wind turbines.
