In September, independent filmmaker Neil Barrett released a short documentary presenting the views of people living near one of Australia’s largest wind farms, located in Waubra, Victoria.
The personal accounts Mr Barrett documents in The Way the Wind Blows demonstrates there is strong support for the wind farm within the Waubra community. The personal accounts tell a positive story and challenge the myths that have emerged about wind energy.
Ted and June Harrison are Waubra wind farmers who live near a dozen turbines.
“We [host] six turbines. We find them comfortable to live with and comfortable to work with,” explains Ted. “We live within 300 metres of a turbine… we have no problems with noise and money keeps coming in.”
