A VITAL income stream that blew in by chance for some drought-hit farmers near Charlton in central Victoria is about to become a reality.

The Coonooer Bridge Wind Farm on a property owned by Peter, Leigh and David Watts, of Yeungroon, is in the final stages of construction and will be commissioned by March 31.

According to the developer, Windlab, it is one of only three wind projects in Victoria with community shareholders.

And, with six towers each standing 95.1m, with blades spanning 117m, they will be the largest wind turbines yet built in Australia.
