The Greens will campaign to stop the Bald Hills wind farm in the seat of Gippsland South in the lead-up to the Victorian election in November.
The newly appointed Greens candidate, Jackie Dargaville, will contest the seat held by the leader of the National Party, Peter Ryan.
Ms Dargaville lives at Fish Creek and lived on a farm at Bald Hills.
She says the Australian Greens support renewable energy over coal and nuclear electricity generation.
“But we do believe that renewables should be in the right place,” she said.
“In coastal areas of great beauty and fairly high population and a lot of tourism potential we believe that’s not necessarily the way to go unless that’s what the community wants.”
