The Moorabool Central Highlands Power Alliance supports renewable energy and wants green energy generated in Western Victoria connected to the rest of the state.
But overhead powerlines are unsafe, inefficient and will destroy our precious landscape.
Underground transmission might be more expensive to install, but it’s safer and more efficient. It is proven to be of equal cost over the life of the project.
Despite these facts, communities from the Ararat region to Sydenham have been told there’s no other way – that AusNet’s massive towers and giant terminal station are the only solution.
Stop AusNet’s Towers is demanding that the State and Federal Governments
- Commit to full, genuine consultation
- Conduct an independent analysis of the alternatives and their costs and benefits
- Commit to better, safer, smarter technology
- Deliver the project in a way that minimises the impact on our communities.
