The Yawong Wind Farm was developed and constructed by BayWa r.e. Wind Pty Ltd in 2018. The wind farm commenced operations in late 2018, and was acquired by Epic Energy in April 2019.
Located approximately 17km northeast of St. Arnaud in Victoria, the site was chosen for its undisturbed wind flow with strong, consistent wind speeds, its close proximity to the electrical grid, and large setbacks to nearby dwellings.
The wind farm has a capacity of 7.2 MW comprising two Vestas V126 3.6MW turbines each with a hub height of 87m. The wind turbines can provide the equivalent energy usage of around 4,500 households, and connect to the existing 22 kV power line that runs adjacent to the site.
