The Normanville Energy Park is located on approximatley 1,700ha of agricultural land near Normanville in the Gannawarra Shire, Victoria. The development will consist of between up to 17 turbines and is expected to generate approximately 500 gigawatts of electricity per annum. This will provide power for around 108,000 Victorian homes and save up to 401,000 tonnes of green house gas annually.
In 2019, WestWind began monitoring the wind resource and are currently undertaking project feasilibility studies. WestWind Energy anticipates that it will lodge environmental and planning approvals in 2023 with construction beginning in 2026.
Once operational, money will be allocated for annual distribution into the local community to share the financial benefits of the project.
The Community Benefit Schemes will be developed through community consultation to ensure the community values and views are properly considered. These may include scholarships, a community benefit fund, community investment program, electricity offset scheme, neighbour benefits and more.
Host Landholder Benefits
The wind farm will provide an annual income for all host landholders. This economic boost to farmers enables them to secure supplementary income annually, for decades, through lease arrangements with the wind farm. This income provides a stable addition to farming income and helps to counteract swings of commodity prices. This sustains the farming practice and diversifies farming revenue for years to come.
The roads constructed for turbine access give landholders all weather access across their property which improves stock management practices and bushfire access.
