St Patricks Plains

Located in the central highlands of Tasmania

Epuron is investigating the elevated plains to the south-east of Miena in central Tasmania. These ridges have strong wind speeds and are currently used for forestry plantation operations. There are relatively few residences in the area which means the potential for noise and other impacts to residences are minimised.

The map below shows the wind prospecting area as well as the location of existing 110,000 volt (pink) and 220,000 volt (purple) transmission lines which cross the area. Nearby substations are also shown.
