Origin Energy on notice for not being protective of the health and rights of neighbours

Origin Energy’s proposed changes to the blade length and height of the turbines at Stockyard Hill will cause irreparable harm to the health of our community.

Origin claims the increase in turbine height is “improving project efficiencies”. This is clever corporate wording for ‘improving profits’ at our community’s expense and also makes the Stockyard Hill Project more attractive to on-sell to foreign investors.

Here is what this means for residents:

A moratorium on all proposed and approved wind farms should be effective immediately until further independent acoustic and health research has been completed and the results made public. Stockyard Hill Community Guardians calls for a new planning application to be required from Origin Energy for the huge change in turbine size and the old permit made obsolete.
