Ausnet, AEMO, Transmission Company Victoria and Energy and Infrastructure Commission Andrew Dyer have lost any credability with the issue of Transmission Lines.
Ausnet and Stephanie McGregor peddled more untruths. This week on the 21st July 2021 Ausnet place large full page ads in the Weekly Times and Ballarat Courier newspapers. They have attempted to marginalise the region by indicating that landholders have granted them access to their properties.
Unfortunately for Ausnet there are very few, if any, landholders willing to see they prime agricultural farmland cut up with massive 85 meter towers.
The pressure is on Ausnet as they find the entire region up in arms with them. From community groups, landholders, Government Authorities and Politicians.
Consultation with Ausnet? What Consultation?
Right from day one Ausnet’s handling of consultation has been disgraceful. They have refused to answer the simplest of questions rather, they continue to pedal mistruths. Ausnet, when they do talk, refuse to directly answer the question and divert to a scripted response that they are “engaging the community”.
Ausnet have had helicopters fly low over landholders properties whilst cows have been calving and sheep lambing, placing enormous mental stress upon people.
See the flight path below of the Ausnet Helicopter. The picture on the right shows Ausnet surveying in the State Forest, something they are not meant to be doing.

St Arnaud Meeting with Energy and Infrastructure Commissioner Andrew Dyer 31st July 2023
At the St Arnaud Town Hall on the 31st July Energy and Infrastructure Commioner Andrew Dyer made himself available to meet the community and answer their questions about the issues surrounding Transmission Lines.
The meeting started out well for Mr Dyer, until Mr Tom Henderson Drife stepped forward to ask about property devaluation. Mr Drife explained that the Commissioner had blocked him as he refused to help with his issue of lossing $1,500,000 of equity on his property at Glendaryel with the proposed WRL project.
Mr Dyer stated that he found Mr Drifes messages offensive and had blocked him.
Mr Drife then read out some of the messages and this made the Commissioner looked extremely silly, as they were not offensive, but were requests help from the Commissioner. Mr Dyer than refused to discuss property devaluation to the shock of the crowd. Mr Drife then went on to explain about the risk of fire and again Mr Dyer shut him down.
The meeting then took one more question and was shut down, leaving the people annoyed and disgusted with Mr Dyer.
