New Zealand firm Wind Farm Developments has announced plans for a 30 MW wind project at Drysdale, northeast of Warrnambool, in Victoria. The company decided to seek permission for the A$63 million, 15 turbine development following the Victoria state government's announcement of its 10% by 2016 Victorian Renewable Energy Target. Wind Farm Developments says it expects to lodge a planning application before the middle of this year. If approved, Drysdale wind farm will produce enough electricity to power 17,000 households and displace up to 92,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year, equivalent to removing 21,000 cars from the roads, says the company.
