Wind farms divide rural communities  

Credit:  Bush Telegraph, www.abc.net.au 10 April 2011 ~~

With a carbon tax on the horizon, attention is turning to renewable energies that could minimise our carbon load, but the increasing use of wind farms remains a divisive issue in many rural communities.

Transcript

A senate committee looking into the social and economic effects of rural wind farms has received 900 submissions and has delayed its final report until early next month.

Senator Rachel Siewert, who chairs the committee, explains the arguments for and against wind power which have been presented to the inquiry.

Victorian planning minister, Matthew Guy, discusses new laws which give residents the power to stop any wind farm within two kilometres of their home.

Russell Marsh from the Clean Energy Council paints a picture of cooperation between the industry and the Victorian government.
