he four-stage Portland Wind Energy Project (PWEP) in southwest Victoria is comprised of five separate sites, with a total installed capacity of 179 megawatts.
All stages were completed in 2015. During construction, the wind farm provided a significant boost to the local economy by creating many direct and indirect jobs for local contractors and also several permanent jobs once operations began.
Pacific Hydro continues to invest in local community initiatives via the Sustainable Communities Fund. More information about the Great South West fund can be found here.
