Locals fight as one against overhead powerlines

The Moorabool & Central Highlands Power Alliance (MCHPA) are increasing pressure to ensure power transmission lines are placed underground with a highly organised new structure. The community came together to create the Moorabool Central Highlands Power Alliance group representing the Moorabool Shire and central highlands inside and bounding the “area of interest” corridor. This group is very important to ensure each region can connect and work with their local communities and fight as one under the MCHPA umbrella.

Four regions – one purpose

The MCHPA have created four regions to represent all interests ensuring everyone has a voice and every voice counts. The group is protesting against the potential decision to place 85m high powerlines and a 19 ha footprint for a terminal station across some of Australia’s best agricultural land. There are some that would have hoped to fracture our community but instead they have united our community and our three local councils. It’s time to say enough is enough and bring an end to these giant transmission lines scarring our landscape. With the increasing call for Australian infrastructure investment to support green energy, above ground powerlines represent dinosaur technology.
