AusNet Services release new WVTNP Landholder Guide

The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project (WVTNP) today released the Landholder Guide: Land access, easements and compensation.

The guide provides additional information about land access, easements and compensation for landholders affected by the WVTNP.

Issues such as land access, easements and compensation are extremely important for landholders - and that’s why AusNet Services has developed these guidelines for publication ahead of the proposed route being determined.

The WVTNP is planning a new 190km transmission line from Bulgana to Sydenham which will put downward pressure on electricity costs while providing Victorian communities with access to renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar.

Western Victoria currently hosts approximately 4,000 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy generation. This project is estimated to increase the Renewable Energy Zone hosting capacity in Western Victoria significantly.

Once complete, the additional transmission line capacity will carry enough energy to power more than 500,000 homes.

We encourage you to take a look at the guidelines on our website and, if you have any questions, please reach out to the project team by phoning us on 1300 360 795 or by emailing us at
