Wind farm relocates to save rare orchid  

A wind farm proposed for a property near Kalbarri, in Western Australia’s mid west, will moved to a new site to protect a rare species of orchid.

Verve Energy says it has moved the location of two wind turbines 150 metres away on to cleared land where the orchid does not grow.

It is building a road to access the site and will then work on the foundations for the turbines which will be installed in September.

The wind farm was due to be operating by the middle of this year.

It is being built as a back-up for the town’s irregular electricity supply from the south-west grid.
