The current electricity network in western Victoria is congested and unable to take on all of the proposed renewable energy generated by wind and solar farms. This means renewable energy generators connected to the existing infrastructure, and future renewable generators that could be connected to the network, are not able to operate at full capacity. This critical, state-significant project will provide much needed capacity upgrades to the network, unlocking renewable resources in the region and maximising the productivity of these existing and new energy renewable generation assets, helping to protect consumers from paying more than necessary for their electricity.
