Cape Nelson North and Cape Sir William Grant wind farms

The last stage of the Portland Wind Energy Project, PWEP IV, covering two sites – Cape Nelson North and Cape Sir William Grant - was completed in 2015.

The project comprises 23 REpower turbines with a combined capacity of 47 MW, which will generate around 153 GWh* of clean energy each year or enough power for the equivalent needs of around 31,000* Victorian homes. As part of the operation of the project, Pacific Hydro continues to invest in local community initiatives via the Sustainable Communities Fund.

*these figures are based on a conservative average capacity factor for the project, the current Victorian emissions factor, and average energy consumption in Victoria per household per year of 5 MWh.
