The project is located approximately 180km northwest of Melbourne and between 9km and 17km northeast of Ararat in Victoria, Australia. Upon completion in 2017, it will be the third biggest wind farm in Australia. The investment on the wind farm is estimated to be $450m, which is financed by Partners Group, RES, OPTrust and General Electric (GE). Construction of the wind farm began in August 2015 and grid connection is expected to be completed by April 2017. The project is designed for a life span of 25 years. RES was selected received a 20-year feed-in tariff (FIT) from the Australian Capital Territory Government for a significant portion of the wind farm's total output in February 2015.
