Australia to Host Southern Hemisphere’s Largest Wind Farm in 2013

As part of an effort to increase the percentage of energy its power grid receives from renewable sources (only 6 percent of the country’s energy is green), Australia is set to build a billion-dollar wind plant in Victoria State. The 140 wind turbine configuration is expected to yield enough power for 220,000 homes and to displace 1.7 million tons of greenhouse gases annually. The project is just one of many steps Australia is taking to meet its 2020 goal of powering the grid with at least 20 percent clean energy.
