The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News - Pic­ture: PAUL CARRACHER

Pre­mier Daniel An­drews, pic­tured at Ararat Wind Farm yes­ter­day, joined En­ergy Min­is­ter Lily D’am­bro­sio at the farm to an­nounce suc­cess­ful re­new­able-en­ergy auc­tion projects. So­lar or wind projects in Gee­long, Mil­dura, Echuca, War­rnam­bool, Mort­lake and Be­nalla districts all won a nod to pro­ceed in the first auc­tion of its kind in the state. Mr An­drews said the projects would col­lec­tively pro­duce enough elec­tric­ity to power the equiv­a­lent of 646,273 house­holds. The auc­tion is part of the state’s Vic­to­rian Re­new­able En­ergy Tar­gets pro­gram.
