The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project has a new name, the Western Renewables Link

The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project has a new name, the Western Renewables Link. The new name makes the assertion that groups who oppose the project are against renewable energy, and this could not be any further from the truth. Groups such as Stop AusNet’s Towers are all for renewable energy. However, they are against big ugly powerlines running through their properties destroying their farms and their communities. This project has been a disaster from the start. Federal Labor MP Catherine King said in an article in the Ballarat Courier a few weeks ago that: It is increasingly clear to all of us the northern corridor proposed to build the transmission lines and the transfer station at Mt Prospect is unviable … The project needs to go back to the drawing board and have an active community participation that includes responding to the concerns, not just listening to them.
