A few weekends ago I took a drive along the coast to the south east of Melbourne, towards Wilsons Promontory. It is such beautiful country out there, with rolling green hills and dramatic coastlines. There are two wind farms out that way, and I saw the first from across the bay, and the other up close and personal.
From Duck Point (just north of Wilsons Prom), you can see Toora Wind Farm across the bay. This is a 21MW facility, made up of 12 x 1.75MW turbines.
But from there it was back towards Melbourne, where the journey took me right past the foot of the Bald Hills turbines.
The Bald Hills Wind Farm [consists] of 52 wind turbines, each with an electricity generating capacity of 2.05 megawatts (MW) giving the project a total capacity of 106.6MW.
