About the project

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.

This project is needed to urgently reduce congestion on the existing transmission network and 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.
