About the Timboon West Wind Farm
The Timboon West Wind Farm was developed and constructed in 2018 by BayWa r.e. Wind Pty Ltd and commenced operations in late 2018. Epic Energy acquired the Timboon West Wind Farm in April 2019.
Located approximately seven kilometres southwest of Timboon in south-western Victoria, the site was chosen for its undisturbed wind flow with strong, consistent wind speeds, close proximity to the electrical grid, and large setbacks to nearby dwellings.
The wind farm has a capacity of 7.2 MW, comprising two Vestas V126 3.6MW turbines each with a hub height of 87m. The wind turbines can generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 5,200 homes each year, and connect to the existing 22 kV power line that runs adjacent to the site.
The environmental benefit from the Timboon West Wind Farm is equivalent to 26,000 tonnes of avoided CO2 emissions per annum, and to taking c.8,667 cars off the road.
The Timboon West Wind Farm is owned and operated by Epic Energy working alongside its key partners. A long term offtake agreement for both the electricity generated and the Large Scale Renewable Generation Certificates is in place along with a long-term operations and maintenance agreement.

The Timboon West Community Fund has been established to share the benefits of Epic Energy’s Timboon West Wind Farm with the local community.
An annual contribution will be made to the Timboon P-12 School for each year of the project’s life, supporting an agricultural education program.
