Moyne Shire Council plays a varied role in major developments or projects in our area. We encourage activities that create employment, drive innovation and attract investment while advocating for the sustainability of our industries, communities, ecosystems and landscapes that make our home so special.
Our shire is experiencing a boost in the number of wind farm projects. This is due to a number of factors, including:
- wind resources
- proximity to a major transmission line, which generally runs east-west across the Shire
- industry advancements in both renewable energy technologies and growth in private sector investments
- two successful bids in the Victorian Government's VRET scheme.
