AusNet Services currently operates 6,500kms of transmission lines across Victoria.
Critical upgrade of the state's transmission network
Our energy network was originally built to carry energy generated from brown coal in the Latrobe Valley to the rest of the state. As we move from coal-generated electricity to sustainable green power, this critical upgrade of the transmission network will help to keep the lights on and power prices down.
Playing a key role in energy supply availability
A new transmission line is required to deliver renewable energy from wind and solar farms in western Victoria, a key renewable energy zone, to homes across Victoria and into the National Electricity Market. The Western Renewables Link is needed to urgently reduce congestion on the existing transmission network and to help unlock significant amounts of clean electricity for Victorians.
The project will involve major economic investment in western Victoria. Many local goods, services and contractors are expected to be used throughout construction.
