St Patricks Plains
Epuron is investigating the elevated plains to the south-east of Miena in central Tasmania. The area has strong wind speeds and is currently used for grazing and forestry plantation operations. There are relatively few residences in close proximity which means the potential for noise and other impacts to residences are minimised.
The map below shows the initial proposed layout within the wind prospecting area, as well as the location of existing 110,000 volt (pink) and 220,000 volt (purple) transmission lines and nearby substations. The layout design is currently under revision and an updated layout will be published as soon as available.
