In 2019 the Victorian Government announced the Western Victoria 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.
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.
We know the project is fundamentally flawed and allegedly unlawful, so we are building a legal case against AEMO and AusNet.
Your donation will help us have our day in court and Stop AusNet's Towers.

About the WVTNP
To favour energy providers, shareholders and a quick politcal win for the Government, the Australian Energy Market Operator and AusNet proposed outdated technology via the fastest and cheapest route.
If this project goes ahead, it will set a horrible precedent for governments to use cheap, outdated and dangerous technology right across Victoria.
We are extremely proud to live in a region that is supplying the renewable energy to power Victoria for decades to come, but will not support a project like the WVTNP.
We deserve better renewable energy solutions, now and for future generations.
Tell the Energy Minister Lily D’Ambrosio to take this project back to the drawing board and put the transmission lines underground.
