AusNet Services (AusNet) is planning a 190 km overhead high voltage transmission line from Sydenham to Bulgana known as Western Renewables Link, formerly named the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project. Moorabool Shire is earmarked for 60 km of the 500kV line from the eastern boundary to the west. Council is active in the planning process for the project, advocating for good community outcomes. This includes investigating options for the line to be put underground, the Green andUnseen campaign,consistentcorrespondence with decision-makers and hosting education sessions with technical experts to help empower our community.
Please note that this is not a Council led project. Feedback should be directed to AusNet Services.
