Opponents question community windfarms local involvement  

Opponents to the Leonard’s Hill windfarm south of Daylesford, want to find out how many community members have signed up to finance the project.

The two-turbine facility to be run by the Hepburn Renewable Energy Group, gained approval from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Appeals tribunal in July.

The Victorian State Government has provided one-million dollars, but another seven-million dollars needs to be raised by the community.

The President of the Daylesford and District Landscape Guardians Group Jan Perry says the Hepburn Renewable Energy Association needs to show where the money is coming from.

“It has been called the first local community windfarm,” she said.

“So it needs to be local community owned – that’s what I’m not happy about, and that’s why I need to have a look at this membership list and just see who the local community is,” said Ms Perry.

“I would like the list for that reason, to see how many local community members are involved in this, where are they and who are they,” she said.
