GVW and Diamond Energy partnered in 2007 to build two bio-gas power stations, at their Shepparton and Tatura waste water treatment plants.

Numurkah Solar Farm – 100MW

Will produce enough electricity for 42,000 homes.
Part of the farms renewable energy output will off-set the greenhouse gas emissions from the Yarra Trams fleet, and the rest will power a Laverton based steel works through a 15 year power purchase agreement.

Yarrawonga Hydroelectric Power station – 9.5MW
Built in 1994 the ‘run of the river’ hydroelectric power station is located at the Lake Mulwala weir.
