Willatook WIND FARM

Facts & figures

The proposed Willatook Wind Farm development would comprise up to approximately 98 wind turbines with a total of up to 220 metres from ground to blade tip.

It should be noted that the figures in the table below are based on the minimum likely turbine rating. These figures could vary where higher capacity turbine models are installed.

Number of turbines 98
Rating of turbines 3.60 MW
Wind farm size 352.80 MW
Predicted output 1,236,211 MWhr p.a.
Average Households supplied 280,957
Carbon dioxide saved 1,347,470 tonnes p.a.
 
The capacity factor used in these calculations is 40.00%.

Calculations 

All the calculations used to estimate annual wind farm output, the number of households it will supply and the CO2 emissions saved, are generic figures based upon the calculations below.

 1. Average Output

Wind Farm Capacity in MW x Capacity Factor (%) x Annual Hours (8760) = Wind Farm Output (MWhr per year)

2. Households Supplied

Predicted Output / Average Electricity Consumption per Household p.a based on the following average consumption figures:

- VIC 4.4 MWhr (Victorian Utility Consumption Household Survey 2015)

3. CO2 Emissions Avoided

Wind Farm Output x CO2 Savings per kWH = CO2 Emissions Avoided

Emissions figures used, in kilograms of CO2 emitted per MWh, were obtained from the Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy (August 2016) National Greenhouse Accounts (NGA) Factors.

Most of the wind farm site is cleared pastureland for cattle and sheep grazing.
