UK-based renewable energy company RES has received planning permission for the construction of the Murra Warra Wind Farm in Australia.

The AUD$650M ($487M) project will include the installation of 116 wind turbines on a farmland north of Horsham in the Wimmera district of Victoria.

Murra Warra will have a capacity of 420MW, and will be able to generate electricity to power up to 248,000 homes. The wind farm is also expected to save over 1.3M t of greenhouse gases annually.

Construction work on the project is expected to be complete in about two years.
RES is currently constructing the 240MW Ararat Wind Farm in Victoria. The 75-turbine project is expected to power about 120,000 homes.
