Price of power  

Credit:  Barossa & Light Herald | November 22 2017 | www.barossaherald.com.au ~~

The Keyneton wind turbine hosts’ plan to ruin this Barossa area with some 20 kilometres of pointless fans has almost expired.

In December 2013, Planning Minister John Rau gave their beloved business partner, Pacific Hydro, four years of construction time to effectively wipe out our homes and further destabilise our once reliable electricity grid.

I note this development application and approval never included any equally useless storage for these occasional, poor quality sparks.

Their cherished company (now a Chinese government owned entity) has gone underground since its dubious approval was hastily granted and the Eden Valley bushfire reduced its entire site to ashes.

So, come on turbine hosts. Tell us how many more years have been stupidly granted to do this dirty work on your land? Another five years? Ten?

Perhaps they could find the decency to tell us. How do they feel about enabling a foreign owned company to rake in millions in subsidies, at the direct expense of Australian families who are trying to keep the lights on?

Is it just easier to look the other way?

It wasn’t so many years ago that they were strutting around the Keyneton hall, finally revealing their destructive plan under the laughable banner of saving the planet.

It’s so disappointing to see them still driving around in their multiple, luxury fossil fuelled cars and tractors – spewing forth all that ‘evil’ carbon dioxide.

Certain rules for the righteous?

For all those people facing crippling electricity bills, why don’t you just send them on to any friendly signed up wind turbine host?

Surely they’ll be only too happy to pay them for you.

After all, I understand their bank accounts are being fed by the very schemes that are fast emptying yours.

M Teusner, Eden Valley.
