A French renewable energy company has been chosen to build a huge wind farm and battery storage facility in western Victoria.

The 204MW wind farm and 20MW Tesla battery will entirely power the Nectar Farms crop at Stawell, as well as pumping the majority of its energy into the local grid.

The Bulgana Green Power Hub is set to be Neoen’s largest project within Australia and create 1300 jobs during construction and 270 ongoing jobs.
