Crystal Brook wind farm plan shelved  

Credit:  ABC News, www.abc.net.au 5 April 2012 ~~

Origin Energy says it will not proceed with a planned 40-turbine wind farm in the mid-north of South Australia.

It said it could not make a business case for the development to proceed at Crystal Brook and it would focus on other projects.

Anne Beinke from a local action group opposing the wind farm said it was good news for many residents.

“We do understand that there will be people in our local community who don’t welcome the news and that has been part of the problem all along that this is such a divisive issue for local communities,” she said.

“But I think it’s clear now from right around Australia that there’s growing concerns about where these things are being sited and the lack of knowledge and the lack of research into their impacts.”
