The wind farm could benefit from the Australian Parliament's 20% Renewable Energy Target (RET), voted this year.

“This project represents the largest single order for Vestas Australia and Asia Pacific and is also the largest wind power project to be announced after the establishment of Australia's renewable energy targets earlier this year. The new V112-3.0 MW is a perfect solution to meet AGL and Meridian's needs for a highly-productive and cost-effective turbine for the medium wind speeds on the project site".
