The preferred transmission route was decided in 2021 and Star of the South have been working with land owners, community, the Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation, and environmental and engineering specialists to study and refine the route. Planning to connect to the electricity grid at Loy Yang, with Hazelwood as a backup. Currently investigating a range of ports to support construction and operations activities.
