An attraction was the local substation dropping the
voltage down for local distribution from one of the two 132kV
transmission lines running north south.
Another is the altitude of the area, Mt Barker is
officially 250m above sea level, SkyFarming expected the wind
resource to be good.
In mid 2005, monitoring equipment was installed
on an existing mast on the top of Mt Barker Hill to confirm this
and development on the project began in earnst.
