Yesterday, Yes 2 Renewables joined a powerful alliance of groups to send Premier Denis Napthine a message on wind energy.
Groups representing wind workers and community members hand delivered a joint statement to the Premier’s electorate office in Warrnambool. The joint statement called for Dr Napthine to rewrite anti-wind farm planning laws and unlock jobs in southwest Victoria.
Several media outlets reported on the joint statement:
- Climate Spectator
- The Weekly Times
- The Standard
- The Portland Observer
- ABC Southwest Victoria
- 3YB Radio Warrnambool
The Premier’s demonstrated support for the wind energy sector by opening the Marcarthur wind farm. Yes 2 Renewables encourage Dr Napthine to take the next step and restore fair laws for wind farms.
Yes 2 Renewables and our partners eagerly await a formal response from the Premier. Rest assured, we’ll let you know when he responds.
Since Dr Napthine took office as Premier, nearly 1500 Victorians have signed our petition calling on Ted Baillieu’s anti-wind farm laws to be dumped. Help build the momentum to restore fair laws for wind farms and sign our petition.
