Stop AusNet’s Towers

AusNet plan to build a 190km high-voltage transmission line from Bulgana to Sydenham.

The 80 meter tall transmission lines will run through some of Victoria’s most beautiful tourism destinations, natural bushland, family homes and prime agricultural land.

An enormous power substation the size of twelve MCG’s will sit just ten minutes from Daylesford.

About the WVTNP

In 2019 the Victorian Government announced the Western Victorian Transmission Network Project (WVTNP), which aims to deliver green energy by connecting large scale wind and solar farms in West Victoria to homes across the state.

The proposed line will start in Bulgana in Victoria’s west and connect to Sydenham, via a new terminal station to the north of Ballarat.

To favour energy providers, shareholders and a quick win for the Government, the Australian Energy Market Operator and AusNet proposed outdated technology via the fastest and cheapest route.

This means 80 meter tall transmission lines will run 190 kilometers through some of Victoria’s most beautiful tourist destinations and pristine natural bushland, impacting culture and heritage, local tourism, regional businesses, and prime agriculture.

An enormous power substation the size of twelve MCG’s will sit just ten minutes from Daylesford.

If this project goes ahead, it will set a horrible precedent for governments to use cheap, outdated and dangerous technology right across Victoria.

We deserve better renewable energy solutions, now and for future generations, not cheap options that favour quick political wins and corporate profit.
