Stockyard Hill Wind Farm is a wind farm project being developed by Origin Energy. The proposed facility will have 157 wind turbines at a site approximately 35 km west of Ballarat between Beufort and Skipton. The forecast cost is $900 million ($950 million US dollars) In December 2009, the original plan for 242 turbines, the plan was changed to only have 157 turbines. The Victorian minister of planning approved the 157 turbines, in October 2010. In 2013 Origin contemplated the idea of selling the project before they began production, later in 2013 they changed their mind and are still continuing with production.
