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 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.
