Cherry Tree wind farm in consultation phase
Infigen Energy’s 56 megawatt Cherry Tree wind farm project in Victoria has moved into the public consultation phase, with the public given two weeks for comment and feedback.
Infigen plans to build 16 turbines on Cherry Tree Range and has revealed the project will cost around $100 million. Although 56 megawatts in potential capacity, the constraints of the 66 kV Seymour-Yea transmission line mean the operating capacity would only be 40 megawatts initially, enough to power 23,000 homes.
Infigen has held several information sessions for the community in the region, in addition to sponsoring trips to nearby wind projects. Another information evening will be held on August 8 in Seymour.
The company has made its planning application to the Mitchell Shire Council.
