Future Energy Pty Ltd has commenced the development of a wind farm of up to three turbines (approx. 6MW) to be located near the township of Maroona, approximately 18km south west of Ararat in Western Victoria. Once built, the wind farm will connect to the existing electricity network in the area and will produce the equivalent energy usage of around 4000 households.
The planning application for the Maroona Wind Farm was approved by the Minister for Planning on 4th May 2016. The application was assessed against the Policy and Planning Guidelines for the Development of Wind Energy Facilities in Victoria.
