Mt Mercer Wind Farm.windmill_0007

I have seen the Mt Mercer Wind Farm

from this distance last year.

Last week I decided to go a bit closer.

There are 64 turbines in the Wind Farm which is about

30 kilometres south-east of Ballarat in Victoria.

This is just under half the number of the

140 turbine Macarthur Wind Farm,

which was constructed just west of where we used to live

and is/was touted as the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

True, or not, it caused a lot of local outcry

before its construction.
