Residents use DVD to highlight wind farm worries  

A residents’ group opposing wind turbines in the McHarg Ranges, south-east of Bendigo, is stepping up its campaign.

The Residents Against Turbines in Tooborac is distributing a DVD outlining its concerns.

The company, Transfield Services, is measuring wind speeds in the ranges, but is yet to put forward a wind farm proposal.

A spokesman for the residents’ group, Peter Russell-Clarke, says the wind farms are inefficient and will ruin the landscape.

He says tourism will also be affected.

“A lot of the people in the McHarg range area were putting up B&Bs well those that started have now stopped and those that we’re going to apply are now not going to apply,” he said.

“A lot of the vineyards are horrified because people just won’t obviously come to an area that’s been desecrated.”
