Community feedback prompts changes to transmission upgrade route

The Ballarat end of the contentious VNI West transmission line may be changing, after community feedback prompted Transgrid and the energy market operator to look at other options.

The feedback around land use between Bendigo and Ballarat has forced the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) and the transmission company to rethink a Western Renewables Link (WRL) connection north of Ballarat.

Craig Memery from the Public Interest Advocacy Centre comments on how issues raised in community submissions to the VNI West must be addressed.
