Fundraising drive on for wind farm health study

A South Australian GP has launched a fundraising effort to sponsor western Victorian-based research into the health effects of wind farms.

Some residents near the Waubra wind farm, west of Ballarat, have complained that the noise from the turbines is affecting their health.

Dr Sarah Laurie says she started the Waubra Foundation because there has been no locally-based research.

“It has been identified in the UK, in France, in Scandinavia and also in North America and Canada. This is not just a Waubra situation; this is happening right across the world,” she said.

Meanwhile, a ceremony will mark the start of construction of the Hepburn wind project, near Daylesford.

In the Australia-first project, two wind turbines will be erected at Leonards Hill, which will generate enough power for more than 2,000 homes.

The wind farm is expected to start operating in the middle of next year.
